This would be similar to a typewriter, but instead of inserting paper, you put toast in.
You type the letters on the keyboard and, instead of imprinting the letters in ink, the (pre-heated to a rather high temperature) bits of metal would that normally do the imprinting, brand the toast with whatever
letters or symbols are selected.
This could have multiple uses. Imagine the gratitude when you bring your significant other breakfast in bed that says "I love you" on it. You could be made to literally eat your words. Or, of course, if you are particularly bored, you could amuse yourself with a breakfast full of ;) and :) emoticons.

||I got toaster inserts for my brother-in-law-ish last xmas.
They are metal sheets with icons and messages stamped
out of them - lo-res but fun. Especially if you can still
keep your breakfast down after your other half has
handed you some toast with a heart and "I love you" burnt
||It might be a cheesy/classy addition to the breakfast tray in a posh/glitzy hotel.
||What do you do if you catch your dog eating your
dictionary? ans er take the words right out of his mouth.
It's an old one, but I like it. Have diagram drawing of same
idea - but I suppose that happens a lot. Well done. Could
there be seance toast sessions?
||I read [hippo]'s link with a heavy heart [2 fries]. Until then I was hoping to be able to connect this to the internet and receive toast messages from other people. I even had an awful pun to go with it. Oh well.
||Someone had to say it but...wouldn't you put bread in instead of toast so the letters could be toasted on....sorry. Bun though. I like
||I thought for a moment this would be
like a inkjet printer, where the tiny ink-
nozzles ware replaced by miniature
||(After this, you would transfer you
freshly printed toast to the butter and
jam printers... The jam printer could
also be multicoloured for full colour jam
printing. CMYK: blueberry, raspberry,
lemoncurd and ehrm... Should I make a
seperate entry for this idea, or is it
baked already - and toasted?)
||Use 'Search' [Ehrm]. If it hasn't been done, do it.
||[Wagster] it was sorta-baked:

Not my idea - apologies. But I wanted
to publicise this in the HalfBakery as an
example of how the real world can often
be so much more halfbaked than
anything we can imagine. See link.

||Lovely, warm, buttery, brown.
||Chalky hearts be damnned.
||I just realized the site is named, Design Porn. So
enter at your own risk, though I didn't go exploring...
||Looks like it is ok... just different source. I'll delete it.
