Here at Jammy Toast today is one of our favourite days of the year. The day when we can quite acceptably throw food around the kitchen is finally here. Up and down the country people have stocked up with chocolate spread, bananas, lemons and sugar ready for Pancake Day. With the bear’s mouths already watering at the thought of the coming treat, we’ve put together our secret guide to enjoying this marvelous invention. Do you go savoury or sweet? How long should you fry them for? When should you toss them?

Nokia 3310 Relaunched

We were right the other week when we announced that Nokia was planning on relaunching the 3310, seventeen years after its debut. Many consider the original handset iconic because of its popularity and sturdiness. More than 126 million were produced before it was phased out in 2005. The revamped version will be sold under license by the Finnish start-up HMD Global, which also unveiled several Nokia-branded Android smartphones. One expert said it was a “fantastic way” to relaunch Nokia’s phone brand. Here at Jammy Toast, we feel it is not going to set the world alight but it is a bit of fun to restart the Nokia brand.

Here at Jammy Toast we have been reading for years how coffee is bad for us. However, if we want a hot drink to wash our Jammy Toast down with then coffee is one of the foremost choices on offer. What do you drink in the morning? Tea, coffee or perhaps you go for a nice refreshing drink of orange or grapefruit perhaps. Well, believe it or not, in this country we drink an estimated seventy million cups of coffee per day – but, the big question is – is this a good thing for us or is this bad for our health?

Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Here at Jammy Toast, we have just learned of the death last year of a true great Liverpool comedian, Mickey Finn. He died last March at the age of 69. Mickey, who was originally from the Scotland Road area and lived in Litherland, died in St Joseph’s Hospice, in Thornton, near Crosby. Mickey, who was born Joseph Flannery, fell ill in November 2015 while appearing in Stan Boardman’s play Medals. He spent months in hospital after suffering blood poisoning and complications arising from existing heart problems.

Last night we all gathered around the telly to watch the match between Sutton and Arsenal, looking to see if there would be a giant-killing act. Half-way through the second half, we had to laugh when Sutton’s reserve goalkeeper and member of the coaching staff, Wayne Shaw, who is no small man, started tucking into one of the club’s pies. We could just imagine the crowd singing “Who Ate All The Pies” at him and it was a funny bit of banter. However, the Football Association are now investigating a potential breach of betting rules.
