Last month, Mr. & Mrs. Tota of Florida began their morning with a craving for waffles but received a kitchen fire instead.

According to this article, Elizabeth & Nicholas Tota's toaster caught fire and caused smoke damage to their condominium. Thankfully, the Totas suffered only minor injuries.

To investigate, I traveled back in time & space to take these photos of the Tota toaster:


Minutes later—even though the toaster's lever had popped back up—the waffles remained stuck inside:


Then this happened:




Poor toaster. Ah well, it's gone to a better place and lives on as a familiar-looking screensaver:

On March 9, 2010, the Totas made waffles in a defective toaster...

And that's how the fire started.

Whoa... You burned it!
 Shocked
Slightly in shock of you burning one of your fantabulous creations!
Regardless, great piece (both the crochet and story)!
Cheesy

PS. Is it really, really tiny?

When I saw the thumbnail I knew it was a Howie Woo. Can't believe you burned it though! That's like... performance art or something Smiley
