A Watchmen Toaster? Hurmmm…

One has to wonder if DC Comics is coming up with Watchmen-related merch in a passive-aggressive bid to make Alan Moore kill himself. The latest: the Watchmen toaster.

Yes, you read that correctly. A toaster. Beginning in September, Dynamic Forces has been licensed to produce toasters that burn images from Watchmen into the breakfast staple. I guess it’s in case you need a reminder to take your meds.

Watchmen is hardly the only property being defamed getting the pop-up treatment. DF are also producing toasters based on The Wizard of Oz, A Christmas Story, Where the Wild Things Are, The Goonies, Gremlins, Little Shop of Horrors, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Mad and Friends. DF describes the project thusly:

These collector toasters will imprint iconic images from your favorite Warner Bros. films and television series onto slices of bread to make a fun impression on your breakfast, lunch or midnight snack! The extra-wide slots allow you to not only toast bread, but also bagels and more. UL tested and approved, it includes illuminated function buttons for cancel, reheat and frozen. The toaster design is a beautiful glossy black finish featuring the logo from the film or television series, and is a compliment to any counter top.

I’ll bet Moore is so furious you could fry an egg on his forehead (and then eat it on the toast).

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
