How dangerous were the first toasters?
How many electricity accidents cause fires?

Well, gentlemen, you are about to see a baked Appel.
Executed in electric chair in New York.
~~ George Appel, d. 1928
You sons of bitches. Give my love to Mother.
Executed in electric chair.
~~ Francis "Two Gun" Crowley, d. 1931
How about this for a headline for tomorrow's paper? French fries.
