This is Caibs ingenuity. This toaster has lasted forever. I was so proud of it. It's probably the cheapest toaster around but it seemed indestructible. Then one morning I went in to make some toast and was soo disappointed. The button that you push down so the toast will sink and toast wouldn't stay down. So for two days any time any one made toast they would have to stand by the toaster and hold down that button until their toast was as done as they wanted it. (people were eating toast that was barely toasted because of it.) Then Caib decided he wanted some toast. It didn't take him long to discover how boring making toast is, so Caib, being Caib, did what Caib does best.....That is he used whatever was close at hand to fix the problem. The problem being--Caib did not want to have to stand there while his Toast was cooking. I love Caibs' problem solving abilities. I think He gets it from His Grandpa Brian. And then there's Chance....... I think the picture says it all.
