THE JEEBUS TOASTER - NO REALLY

The Review:

This toaster is NOT just a gag gift. It is a working toaster which just happens to imprint a stylized picture of Jesus. There are instructions enclosed with it recommending to cycle it without toast initially, I suppose to get rid of funny odors from manufacture. Also one should plan on having to cycle and adjust it a couple of times with their toast before they get the color right, as with any toaster. The primary control is an analog dial and I ignore the buttons. (I have no idea why manufacturers insist on complicating common-use appliances with lots of buttons.) 
I'd love it if they would also make them for world religious figures, particularly The Buddha, and members of the Hindu pantheon, but realize there's probably not so much of a market for such icons in the US. There might however be markets for other figures such as Einstein or Elvis, so the makers should consider them. They already make a peace symbol toaster and a marijuana leaf symbol toaster but those just don't have the appeal of the Jesus toaster.

Yeah, but I bet you can't you sell the toast to an insane gambling website for millions of dollars...

I've seen these before and thought they were interesting. I'm more from the peace & leaf end of the spectrum, but it is understandable that this toaster carries them to the bank. Love your idea for Hindu and Buddhist versions.:)
