Let's say that as a part of your job, you bake baguettes. A lot of baguettes, all at once, on a daily basis.

Of course, if this is the case and you're in a modern kitchen, chances are good you have a ginormous mixer handy in order to facilitate the making of said baguettes. Like this, only pretend there's just one of them.

Believe me, these come in very handy when you need to mix up approximately 20 pounds of baguette dough. You just weigh out your ingredients, tip them in, twist some knobs, pull some levers, and you're good.

Except, of course, if your mixer stops working for some reason...
But what will become of the baguettes?!?! I MUST KNOW! )
