Quest for the Pirate Toaster: We're getting warmer!

I'm looking for a pirate toaster. Got one?

To those who stepped in late: I'm on a quest for a pirate toaster. I'm looking for something like the skull-and-crossbones appliance sold in Germany that will allow me to brand a thoroughly awesome Jolly Roger into my morning toast. But at this point, it doesn't look like I can locate one here in the States. When we last left the Quest, readers, I had just learned about the Pop Art toaster sold at Target, which is a good try, but there are no pirates involved. I have no use for a toaster that can brand snowflakes or birthday cakes.

Well, there's good news out of Engadget. The guys over there have caught wind of a hacked CNC air gun that's been hooked up to a printer so that it can burn patterns into toast, thus turning it into "digital toast imaging technology." Perhaps it could be programmed to brand a skull and crossbones somehow? Hmm? Maybe? Check out this video:

So the auspices are in my favor. But hear me out: I will stop at nothing in my quest for this ultimate prize in kitchen-appliance booty. If you have one, I'm willing to barter. I have a katana that I'd trade you for it (good if you happen to come across any ninjas), or maybe some second-rate Blu-rays. Any takers?
