I love Etsy for the simple fact that you can find products on it that you’d never see elsewhere. Like, for example, a ridiculously accurate representation of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs burnt into a piece of toast. For this piece of used-to-be-edible art you must pay a measly $20. Ok, maybe that’s a little bit steep for a charred chunk of bread, but hey, when you create a new market — as Etsy user ggat seems to have — you’re allowed to set the price.
The bread in question is your standard white fare, which is then burnt using a laser to create the portrait. To ensure the toast doesn’t fall victim to various forms of degradation it is coated in a spray varnish.
Why would you want such a thing in the first place? I’m not sure, but I can sleep soundly tonight knowing that if the urge strikes me, a slice of Jobs toast is just a click away.
