There is an air of gloom around Jammy Toast today after the news yesterday that actor Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr Spoke in the cult sci-fi TV series Star Trek, has died at the age of 83. He had a long career as both an actor and director, however, he was best known for his portrayal of the half-human, half-Vulcan character in both the TV franchise and the series of films. Last year, the actor revealed he was suffering chronic lung disease COPD, despite stopping smoking 30 years ago. It was reported earlier this week he had been taken to hospital suffering from chest pains. He later tweeted; “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.” He signed off what was to be his final tweet with “LLAP” – a reference to his character’s famous catchphrase, “Live long and prosper”.

Gordon Buchanan does his bit for International Polar Bear Day

Today at Jammy Toast we are celebrating International Polar Bear Day. Polar Bear Day is a holiday celebrated every 27th February to raise awareness about the conservation status of the polar bear. It is organized by Polar Bears International to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and reduced sea ice on polar bear populations. The holiday encourages people to find ways to reduce their carbon output, such as by turning down their thermostat or driving less. The holiday has also been used to encourage the installation of energy efficient insulation in houses.

Here at Jammy Toast we love local celebrities – normal people who make others happy while performing their local duties. Who remembers Ziggy Dust who, to this day, is still one of our Bear Heroes? Now we have found another man who just makes others happy while performing his job as a lollipop man. Nkosana Mdikane, 74, is known as “Scotland’s happiest lollipop man” due to his singing, dancing and “high-fiving” the children as he crosses them across the road. However, as is always the case when someone is making others happy, the bureaucrats from the local council have to step in a ruin the fun and have banned Nkosana from his “high-fiving”. West Dunbartonshire Council said safety fears were behind the decision.

Jammy Toast Turns Its Back On Coca-Cola

Once upon a time, here at Jammy Toast, we used to be in love with Coke and Pepsi. We used to get through large quantities of the secret recipe every week loving the taste of the world’s favourite drink. Now it appears we are following the British trend of falling out of love with Coke and Pepsi and instead we’re pouring energy drinks down our necks. “It used to be you’d see people on the bus drinking a can of coke, now they’ve got an energy drink,” says Olly Wehring, editor of the industry’s magazine Just Drinks. And the numbers seem to back him up – recent years have seen a huge surge in the popularity of energy drinks and it’s mostly at the expense of more traditional cola drinks.

We may not think Liverpool is perfect, but then neither is Clarkson!

The Mayor of Liverpool has joined the outcry against Jeremy Clarkson’s comments about Liverpool and has branded the Top Gear presenter an “Oaf” and a “Buffoon”. Joe Anderson now plans to speak to the BBC over the presenter’s Sunday Times column, which included a description of a recent stay in the city. Clarkson claimed people from the city “earn less, die more quickly, have fewer jobs and live in houses that are worth the square root of sod all”. The motor-mouthed TV star also claimed a waitress didn’t know what a kipper was during a visit earlier this month.

According to Jeremy Clarkson, Scousers “earn less, die more quickly, have fewer jobs and live in houses that are worth the square root of sod all.” Then when the people of Liverpool complain about what he said in his Sunday Times newspaper column, he launches into a foul-mouthed rant on Twitter in defence of his trolling of the city of Liverpool. The BBC personality told his Twitter followers; “People of Liverpool. Read what I actually wrote. Including the bits the fucktards on the local rag left out. Shocking journalism.”

Following the subject of the last two posts I awoke this morning to read the paper when I came across the following in the Daily Mirror. The Gag Vault often hits the nail on the head when it comes to making funny cartoons but today they have surpassed themselves with their insight into Davidd and his eating habits. He wants to be good and, as we already know, he loves attracting the young hunks on South Beach in Florida but alas the food usually wins. Just look at the following and laugh…

Hello everyone, my name is Erik, I am a teddy bear who spends nearly every night sitting next to Davidd here at Jammy Toast. I mention this because today I am here to speak out on his behalf. He seems to be getting some bad press lately about his eating habits. Just because he likes to joke with people about food does not mean he is eating all that food. Yesterday, he was joking about Burger King doing home deliveries when he was suddenly attacked by Miss Chimpton who accused him of needing his jaw wiring.

Home Delivery At Last!

For years here at Jammy Toast we have dreamt about McDonald’s, Burger King or maybe even KFC doing home deliveries. We have heard of some resourceful taxi drivers running services where they will go to a fast-food restaurant on your behalf and then deliver to your door. However, that’s not quite the same – “they could spit in ya burger” as Razzi has previously put it. Now comes the good news that Burger King are trialling a home delivery service across Britain. The bad news is that it is only being rolled out in certain parts of the country first.

One of Jammy Toast’s favourite guitarists, Wilko Johnson, is to return to Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge to play a “thank you” gig after he survived what he thought was terminal cancer. The former Blockhead and Dr Feelgood guitarist was given ten months to live after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. However, he went on to get the all clear last April after the 3kg tumour was removed. Now to thank the hospital he will perform a fun-raising gig in Cambridge next month.
