Warning: Do Not Roast a Turkey in Toaster

Toaster WarningOkay, this warning label, sent along by lawyer comic and insurance expert Randy Maniloff, does not actually cover turkey roasting, but maybe that’s because there wasn’t any room left after warning people not to toast their “Danish, Muffin [or] Cake” in the toaster.

But wait, what’s up with the warning to not put “Bread” in the toaster?

–Thanks to Randy Maniloff.

    that last statement is badly constructed, but its basically saying “don’t put butter/cheese/cream on your bread/danish/muffin/bagel/cake before toasting it”

    Its still a contradicting set of statements.
    At the top though, it’s saying you should only toast ‘toast & bagels’. By ‘toast’ i presume they mean bread (as in sliced tin loaf style).
    You don’t put toast in a toaster. You put bread in it.
