Execution Baked Potato is an item of kitchen ware, used for baking potatoes.

The apparatus is constructed to represent a miniature electric chair, in an enclosure, with the potato being positioned on the seat. The main head electrode holds it in place, in exactly the same way as that of a prisoner about to be executed. For extra effect a small area of skin at the top of the potato may be peeled off prior to electrode deployment.

Once the potato is secured in place, the door of the apparatus is closed over, and you may peer in through a safety glass panel, as the condemned tuber is rapidly cooked to perfection in what is actually a mini microwave/electric oven.

       Appalingly bad taste, crass, insensitive and insulting.

       //rapidly cooked to perfection// Before I read the next sentence I assumed you were cooking the potato by running a large electrical current through it.   

       Would that work?

       Erm, if you're doing the whole Mr Potato Head look, then you're going to need something with a higher melting point than the usual plastic bits.   

       There's a "the potato's eyes went dull..." bit in there somewhere. 00:41hrs here in Tokyo...zzzz

       //Actually, "ytrewq", seen from the front// - assuming you have a keyboard with all the letters in the right places but printed on the keys in mirror-writing

       Appallingly bad spelling, 8th. Although the rest of your anno is correct.

       I want actual current, not stupid microwaves which probably don't even exist, and if they do make cancer-water which kills teh plants.

       Not only should this be created, but placed under the observation chairs on actual executions, allowing an energetic ME (master of executions) to announce their presence, Oprah-esque to the excited onlookers.

       Sadly true story, but not mine....   

       I was going to say "I was impressed" but surely it was the letters that were impressed? Or not?
