I'm referring, for all you nano newbies, to "Nanometer-Scale Kitchen Appliances and the Physical Limits of Toastability," a send-up of the early nanotech visionaries published in 1997 in "The Best of Annals of Improbable Research" alongside such papers as "Taxonomy of Barney" and "The Effects of Peanut Butter on the Earth's Rotation."
