By 1939, toast was so popular that it was picked to be the male lead in the film version of “Gone With the Wind.” Toast backed out at the last minute, so actor Clark Gable was chosen instead. Nobody has heard about him since the film’s colossal failure.
The atom bomb was not originally invented, as some have believed, as a weapon, but as a new way to heat up many, many slices at a time. J. Robert Oppenheimer was a noted toast addict and spent much of his spare time drawing pictures of toast.
