    depends on the amount of electrical charge and the continuity of the bread of course, Like a really Big piece of bread could take 2 bolts of lightning, or a very small storm might have trouble with just 150k slices.

    Geesh. If he was that into brevity he could have at least dropped the final “e.”

    Imagine a toaster big enough to accommodate 160,000 slices of bread.

    Take care and may God bless.

    AMAZING YAK: Shakespear(e) wanted to call that play, “Julius Grab That Woman NOW!”, but his editor made him shorten the title to “Julius Seize Her”!!

    Looking for the penguin guano only works for the 4 species that live in that Antarctic polar regions, the other 13 species live in temperate climates and their nesting sites tend to look very similar to those of other sea birds

    I don’t know about bread, but I lightning did roast 3 squirrels who were in the wrong tree at the wrong time in my yard.

    Interesting, penguin poop must be the only poop that can be seen from space.

    We’ve seen Iceman cool a drink for a friend. Guess Storm handles the toast.

    So, is Shakespeare also the one who inundated the language with the use of the moronic “Bro,” and “Dude?”

    Sometimes you can burn the edges when you use lightning to toast your bread.
