Selfie Toaster: Mass Culture Transubstantiation

Well now, there's this item that allows pop culture to indulge in mass transubstantiation. From, who reports:  The Selfie Toaster Is Exactly What It Sounds Like:

"According to Jenn Harris at the LA Times, (which is nobly stepping up its bread beat, from the looks of it, going after that elusive Pulitzer for Baked Goods reporting), a company named Burned Impressions in Vermont is selling toasters that make bread selfies. For the bargain price of $75, you can buy a signifier of the end times, aka a toaster that will burn an image of you onto a piece of bread.

It's the same company that created the Jesus toaster and the Rapture toaster with images of Jesus and bodies floating up toward the sky."
