Haha. No, you're all wrong! (Doesn't ANYBODY read my blog any more???).
I would have thought it would be some kind of a weapon. Probably a laser-type thing to send out deadly rays to foil the bad guy.
In Emery's mind it's a sandwich maker! He held it by the smooth part (on the right) and aimed it like a weapon of mass destruction, but then explained to me that the WHITE bread hangs on the hooked part in the center and the peanut butter comes out of one side and the jelly out of the other side.
So there you have your answer. Now you can sleep again.
