Today in Alan Moore’s Worst Nightmares Coming to Life: The Official Watchmen Toaster.



Oh, indeed. Dynamic Forces will partner with Warner Bros. and whatever dark nemesis of Alan Moore’s snake god is to produce an official Watchmen-themed toaster, along with many, many other movie toasters, beginning in September. What the toaster will burn on the toast isn’t known at the moment, but I think we can take a few guesses…

? The WATCHMEN text logo
? A Rorschach mask ink blot design
? The symbol on Dr. Manhattan’s head
? The Comedian’s smily face pin (just add strawberry preserves for blood!)
? Dr. Manhattan’s semi-erect penis
? The words “FUCK YOU, ALAN”
Any other suggestions?
