I was making toast. I made the first batch. I put in the second batch---and the lever wouldn't stay down. I jiggled the handle for awhile, checked to make sure the toaster hadn't somehow come unplugged, etc. etc. BORING, and then finally looked inside the toaster, where I saw a weird gooey green thing. After unplugging the toaster and messing around with the pliers, I extracted the not-actually-gooey green thing, and figured out what it was: a green plastic baby spoon, melted around the heating element.
SOMEONE (I'm looking in the 3-year-old department) must have put or dropped a plastic spoon into the toaster at some point. Then I made toast, and the spoon melted. The toast popped up and the melted plastic went solid again, jamming the toaster.
Problem: Toaster not working.
