12/25/2002: Toast Elvis



And once again, I have no comment.

He clearly has a toaster with very precise darkness settings. And no life.



MaggieL  Wednesday Dec 25 07:46 PM

But so wasteful!

One image: one piece of toast.

is it just me, or does that toast look really small??

It looks like he trimmed the crusts off to improve the tiling.

Cocktail toast... who would have thought?

oooooooh....high-resolution toast with close dot pitch.

maggie, I think that is possibly one of the funniest things I've read here in a while (including the "please..." thread).

Clever, on-topic, and with the hallmarks of an ur-geek.

Put me in mind of my college days, it did, when things were so primitive that we had to use stale food stolen from the cafeteria as output devices. Decwriters were scarce in those days ...

Actually, in high school, when the shipment of stock paper was late, we once stole a roll of paper towels from the bathroom and trimmed it on a bandsaw in the woodshop so it would fit on the paper feed for our Teletype terminal.

In my day, we didn't have all this fancy schmancy computer paper. Why, that's for pussies!! Back then, we just had toast and paper towels! And we liked it! Our power supplys were made from potatos, and instead of a keyboard, we just had little switches! If you got hungry enough, you had to eat your monitor!! Those were the days, let me tell ya. Boy howdy!

You have computer paper in Arkansas?

I dunno about toast, but I can assure you that neither computer paper nor paper towels are for pussies. Insist on toilet paper, preferably unscented.

Toast sounds itchy, though, no matter how well you might butter it. .

Isn't that near Elbonia? :-)


Torrere  Friday Dec 27 04:30 AM

Arkansas has some more elevation than the subaquatic state of Elbonia, but I've heard that Arkansas spent part of the decade under whitewater, so that might be changing.



elSicomoro  Friday Dec 27 05:06 AM

Well, other than Juju and his friends in Fayetteville, there probably aren't any computers around for a good 200 or 300 miles.

I was tuning through the AM band of the radio while driving across west Texas on the King's birthday and I chanced upon a radio bible thumper who pointed out if you take the "s" in Elvis and change it to a "d" and rearange the letters you get "Devil"

WOW, I never thought about that...
