I bought a used toaster. It came with a piece where I don't know where or how it is used. Can someone enlighten me?

That beauty reminds me of a true story (it's what us old guys do repeatedly - tell stories). As a wee lad of about 4 years of age, I watched my mom retrieve stuck toast out of our old toaster with a fork or knife numerous times. I hopped up onto the counter one day to make some toast and proceeded to retrieve it with a fork. Pow, I got zapped with 120 volts and was knocked to the floor. I never noticed that mom unplugged the toaster first before retrieving the bread duh
