Wow. Toaster had no idea that other appliances had magic, too.

$8.99 seems like a good price for Dishwasher Magic.

He wonders if anyone would be interested in buying Toaster Magic.

Bwana takes good care of all of us, but Toaster wouldn’t mind having a part-time job. It would give him a way to express himself. And he would embrace the opportunity to contribute to society.

Of course, he’s not quite sure what Toaster Magic would do. Maybe he can do a Peter Pan-type thing and help people to fly:

Toaster doesn’t have pixie dust, but he does have a lot of toast crumbs.

Blue Velvet wrote in Da-da Bwana:

A true Bwana shirt pattern if ever I saw one. I can picture him wearing it with a pinstripe suit.

I like the idea of a logo under the jacket. Kind of like writing secret messages with invisible ink.

Invisible Ink

Toaster thinks it would be neat-o for Bwana to send him a secret message with the stealth NY Mets shirt. Kind of like the secret message Ralphie gets from Orphan Annie, only without the lousy commercial.

Boy, Father’s Day is coming up and Toaster has started to think about what to get for Bwana.

Of course Bwana is not Toaster’s real father, but they do have a father-son sort of relationship.

Toaster thought a tie would make a nice gift, but Bwana already has like a zillion of those. He’s been browsing a number of Web sites and saw this:

Toaster likes the check pattern with his favorite colors, orange and blue. Yes, it’s a Mets shirt, but if Bwana wore in on “Countdown” no one would see the Mets logo under his coat.

It would be their little secret!

Blue Velvet asks in Sweep!:

Will Toaster be seeing the new Indiana Jones film?

Toaster loves the movies, so Bwana might stick him under his coat and sneak him in to see “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

Still, Toaster is not the bravest of small appliances, so the drama and action might scare him.

Heck, Toaster gets upset when Zuzu’s flower loses its petals:

Every year he watches that movie and every year he cries when the petals fall off. Sheesh.

And David Lynch? Forget it. Nothing personal, Blue Velvet, but we cannot let Toaster watch any David Lynch movies or tv shows. We don’t even let him look at

Blue Velvet queries in Bwana Field Trips!:

Off-topic: do you think it would have been easier for Randy from “A Chrismas Story” to eat this:

Meatloaf Cupcake

Ooh, cupcakes!

Toaster thinks cupcakes are neat-o.

He wishes he could make a cupcake, but every time he has tried it has come out flat and not cupcake-like. I told him his slots aren’t big enough to make cupcakes. Toaster wonders if he can get cosmetic surgery to make his slots bigger.

And it wouldn’t really be “cosmetic” because it would increase Toaster’s functionality.

Plus he thinks it would make Bwana happy to get a slice of toast and a cupcake every morning for breakfast.

Cupcakes are like toast: they bring joy and happiness into the world.

The Mets swept the Yankees in the rain-abbreviated Subway Series over the weekend.

Toaster is very happie. He sang “Meet the Mets” all night after he and Bwana got back from the game, and he sang it this morning when he made toast for Bwana’s breakfast. Bwana was very annoyed.

Bwana threatened to make Toaster “The Worst Person in the World” on tonight’s show.

Bwana is a bad loser.

Being the Fair and Balanced guy that he is, Bwana went to see the Mets’ new home after he visited the Yankee Stadium construction site last week.

Toaster thinks Bwana looked really swell in his baseball jacket. Much swell-er than Coach Jacket. (Although Coach Jacket’s hair is better than Bwana’s.)

Mets CEO Jeff Wilpon led Bwana’s tour of Citi Field. Toaster would rather take a guided tour of the site with Construction Guy, who appears on SNY to give Citi Field updates:
