Toast

"Toast" was a strange phenomenon in our group for several years. In the 2004-2005 school year, I started a program of daily quizzes on different aspects of music. Some of the faster kids would finish early and then draw pictures on their quizzes to have something to do for a minute or two before time was up. One of those pictures ended up at the end of our "year-in-band" movie, a picture of a anthropomorphized (look it up) piece of toast with a mowhawk haircut that came running in from the side and had the John Belushi "list of excuses" played out and then ran off. This was after the whole movie had finished and was completely random and off-the-wall...so of course it was a big hit. Since then, we had a year of toasty chalkboards as well as a live-action movie with toast. The toast character was well-known in the band until it graduated with it's creators during the 2007-2008 school year.
