Velocitoaster has had a place in my heart for many years now, but this is its first public appearance. The genesis of its creation was as an invention of Amanda's. It would simultaneously show her incredible building capabilities while being one of the most pointless and useless inventions ever.

Velocitoaster may yet see the light of day in an Amanda-related story, but after showing sketches of it to some of my classmates and getting a very positive response, I decided it was high time it saw the light of day.

This "ad" actually has false advertising, however. Velocitoaster is far slower than the ad would have you believe, and it is by no means carnivorous. That just sounded like a hilarious description to me, and 40 mph is close to what I've heard a top speed for velociraptors would likely have been.

In truth, the Velocitoaster is rather docile and easy to control, in spite of it being scary looking and growling (why Amanda programmed it to growl and roar, I have no idea). Just in case it goes haywire, however, Amanda built the "Velocifork" countermeasure. This is somewhat counterintuitive, as Velocitoaster is only theoretically aggressive if it malfunctions in just the right way, while Velocifork is hostile and violent by design. Mad scientists often use somewhat roundabout logic, however.

Oh, and just for the record, Tori was well compensated to assert her dislike for stationary toasters. She actually prefers toasters that stay wherever she chooses to place them, and has no desire to tend to whatever needs a Velocitoaster might have.

Now we just need to put a few of them in a rather failure-prone zoo island and we'll have a franchise!

I just have to ask, when was the last time anyone saw a toaster that looked like the classic cartoon toaster?

I never see them in anyone's homes, but I see them in stores regularly. You can totally buy them. I don't know who's buying them, but they apparently exist.

this made me think of a "schlock mercenary" story where they had aquired a malfunctioning "fabber" (automated factory) and were making it build toasters...
the story starts here: [link]
