Icon81 Death by toaster

Comment: This is not a NEW rumor, but it's been repeated as gospel for at
least 60 years. Is it true or not?

"You can get electrocuted by jamming a fork (or knife, etc) into a
toaster," the implication being that the metal might make contact with the
hot filaments and conduct a powerful jolt of electricity up your arm to
your heart or other vital organs.

Let me know, OK?
