Janice Young commented in The Surgical Toaster:

“He wonders if Ginsu appendectomy knives are covered under Hillary Clinton’s proposed health plan…”

I don’t think a lifetime guarantee is quite the same:

If we can’t get Ginsu appendectomy knives, Mr. Veg-o-Matic has volunteered to help. He says he graduated from the Popeil College of Medicine. Toaster’s not sure if we should believe him ….

On a new football team for Hoodie:

Blue Velvet wrote: It’s not “The Bears,” it’s “Da Bears”:

Hoodie doesn’t favor a team who doesn’t have a clear #1 at QB.

Judie suggested: A great team for Toaster and Hoodie: J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!

Toaster likes the spelling bee aspect of their war cry.

And it’s a lot easier than “B-U-C-C-A-N-E-E-R-S!”

Sheila advised: Toaster and Hoodie need to become fans of the Cleveland Browns, you’ve got to LOVE the ‘Dog Pound’.

Dog pound? Neat-o! Is that where Lou hangs out during football games?

And Blue Velvet added: How about my hometown of Pittsburgh with its Steelers Polka? Steelers Polka (Old)

What a great song!

Toaster wonders if he can polka to Meet the Mets ….

Sheila wrote in The Surgical Toaster:

I would warn Hodie Bear not to take Toaster up on his offer to play ‘Doctor’ if I were you.

Hoodie’s been devastated by the Coach Bill cheating scandal. He can’t believe his favorite coach and his favorite team would stoop to such evilness! Toaster doesn’t understand such bad behavior, either.

Hoodie’s not sure what to do. He can’t cheer for the Patriots anymore. Toaster suggested that he pick another team. The Bears would be a logical choice ….

Filed under: Our Happie Home, Things That Toaster Thinks About wants to be prepared in case Bwana needs another appendectomy, so he’s been working with the Ginsu Knives and making sure they stay nice and sharp. We tried to explain to Toaster that Bwana only had one appendix and that it’s gone now, but he was too busy to listen. He’s going to check online to see if Ginsu produces an Appendectomy Edition knife.

He wonders if Ginsu appendectomy knives are covered under Hillary Clinton’s proposed health plan ….

Blue Velvet commented in Red Cross Toaster:

I like the Hello Kitty Band-Aids, but this might be more appropriate for Bwana:

Glow-in-the-Dark Spongebob Squarepants Band-Aids

because of:

Will Spongebob make you gay?

Wow! Glow-in-the-dark band-aids!

Toaster thinks those are a fabulous creation. If Bwana wore one of those over his appendectomy scar then Toaster would easily be able to find him at night. (As it is, when Toaster wants to check Bwana at night Candelabra has to go with him.)

Bwana hasn’t put one on yet, but here’s a close-up of Toaster wearing a glow-in-the-dark SpongeBob band-aid:


How cool ….

I heard that Bwana is back home, so I’m sure Toaster is doing better. I’m also sure he is busy with ‘Mrs. Tea Pot’ making lots of ‘Tea And Toast’, one of the best things to have when your sick.

We’re all happie that Bwana is back home. Toaster has been especially diligent, staying at Bwana’s side ready to help at any time of day or night.

Small appliances are usually quite fickle, but Toaster is especially loyal and devoted to Bwana.

Get Well, Bwana!

Sheila queried in Toaster Query II:

How is Toaster handling Bwana getting an Appendectomy and being in the Hospital away from all his favorite appliances?

hello-kitty-band-aid.jpgToaster was distraught. He thought that the toast he makes for Bwana had caused the appendicitis. But the nice people at the hospital told him that toast doesn’t cause appendicitis. That made Toaster feel a lot better.

Bwana told all the appliances to behave while he was gone, and everyone has been very, very good.

We can’t wait for Bwana to get home!

(Candelabra offered to fill in for Bwana on Countdown, but they said Alison was going to do it. Darn ….)
