Date: May 6, 2005
Summary: Steve is briefed on the ongoing appliance wars.
"Fin" style: Letters morphing a la robots
Number of panels: 12
Steve approaches a toaster with a slice of bread to toast.
Toaster: "Listen carefully - we don't have much time! I come from a race of sentient robots, locked in a bitter civil war that has raged across the kitchen for eons."
Toaster: "Now the evil Lord Moulinex has all but wiped out my kind... I am my people's last hope!"
Toaster: "Take this and guard it well."
The Toaster hands Steve a device.
Toaster: "It is the Omega Quadrant, the one object that can defeat Lord Moulinex. If it is destroyed all hope is lost!"
A Vacuum and a Blender appear.
Toaster: "Oh no..."
Toaster: "Lord Moulinex!"
The Vacuum and Blender (Lord Moulinex) CH-A-NGE!
Lord Moulinex: "Seize him!"
Toaster: "Remember what I said! You are our only hope!"
Lord Moulinex: "Take him to... the disintegration chamber!"
Toaster is now off screen.
Steve and Lord Moulinex look at each other.
Lord Moulinex: "Nice place you have here."
Lord Moulinex CH-A-NGE!'s back into a blender.
Steve breaks the Omega Quadrant with a CRIK sound.
- Not only are toasters faeries, but also sentient robots.
- Moulinex is a home electronics company in France.
