Donut, toast or pie?

Like Homer Simpson would say: "mmmmh, donuuutsss ghhhhhhhhh...." I reckon I would have made a good cop... or is it fat cop? or bad cop !?
anti ticket donutTrouble with the law? Lead foot? Late for Work? Does that Police Officer Know You By First Name?

Then You Need: The Anti-Ticket Donut!

Keep this device in the glove box near the registration for your car.
If you are stopped by the police use such phrases as: “I can’t find my car’s registration, I only have this tasty donut”. Or say, “Instead of my driver’ license, wouldn’t you like to have this delicious donut?” The donut works best by itself, but it can be combined with other methods such as crying, whining, and begging.
Think of it as a polite way of saying: "Can we settle this here?"
toast messenger by Sasha TsengThe canned donut is not very environmentally friendly, but then again, the donut itself is not very health-friendly anyway. A good way of caring for the environment tho, is to combine your morning toast bread with a post-it note. I mean, instead of leaving extra post-it notes on your brunch-box like: "don't forget to pick up the laundry"... or typical: "don't forget to make the deposit for the upholsterer". inventables - transparent toasterNow you can burn-mark your toast with a drawing and/or leave messages like "don't forget to wash the dishes after your breakfast!". All you need is a toast messenger designed by Sasha Tseng from Japan. If you are into minimalism, and minimalistic modern food... you'll probably like the transparent toaster. I have no idea how safe is that... but it certainly looks very nice. I wouldn't dare to use my fingers to grab the bread loaf and it's not very sternform toasterpractical to toast just one slice. This other glass toaster by Andrea Großfuss and Olaf Kießling seems to be easier to grab... but still, looks very dangerous to me. I guess we're getting bored of the old style toasters. Any ornaments on new toasters like this Russell Hobbs Toaster, are like Adolf Loos would say: criminal ornaments! : "The evolution of culture marches with the elimination of ornament from useful objects".

knusprig gebacktIf you rather have a slice of this apple strudel... or better said, mandel-pie. Here's a collaborative baked piece. I did a 2D version of this Mandel-pie when I was navigating around coordinates found by Kent, who was also browsing around an earlier finding by Duncan. Anyway, Duncan translated my old plotting parameters into a 3D image, and I re-baked it again into a new pie with a nice 3D crunchier crust. Enjoy with a nice glass of milk or cup of coffee!

Mmmmm..... Fractals :) Love that fractal which looks suspiciously like a chocolate cake. I'm intrigued by the toaster which lets you make notes on your toast. I think I want one! Except that the toaster I already have is prefect.

Chocolate???

I thought it was an apple pie. After all that delicious food yesterday, I don't have any room left for anything.

Here's the link to fractalworks.
