I'll Be Back

I argued with my AI toaster yesterday morning over the proper use of the bagel button. It wouldn't stop arguing even after I repeatedly insisted, "Pointdexter, stop!" I temporarily remedied the situation by leaving the toaster on mute all day. When I unmuted it this morning, it required that I complete an "I'm not a robot" CAPTCHA process before I could make toast. Not just any CAPTCHA process, mind you, but a hidden-object CAPTCHA requiring me to find 42 hidden objects before I could use my toaster! After I successfully slogged through, the AI announced, "CAPTCHA successful. Proceed to make your toast. Please note the bagel button has been disabled."

Mark, I'm not a great fan of the Haibun form but I have to say that having read a couple of excellent examples recently (Line Gauthier's and now yours) I'm contemplating attempting one! :) This is very clever, funny and skillfully put together. Nice one! Cheers - Gary
