We are sad to report the passing of “Jr.” and (unconfirmed) “Nick” this afternoon.  They were melted by toaster and nearly smothered by blanket.  We are thankful to report that the carnage was caught before anything broke out into flame, causing even more damage.  Guardian angels were not seen, but were reportedly on the scene.

Dr. Dad rushed in and attempted to save “Jr.” and “Nick(?),” but they were pronounced “melted” at 4:27pm.  The toaster, however, did make it through with minor surgery.
