Today the whole of Jammy Toast has gone into mourning after our friend Tim broke the news that Ivo Pešák has died. Ivo was a Czech singer, dancer, and comic performer. He is perhaps best known for his work with Ivan Mládek’s Banjo Band, and particularly for his high-spirited performance in the viral video phenomenon, featured on Jammy Toast yesterday, Jožin Z Bažin. Ivo was born at Jaroměř, then in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. He was a member of the rock ‘n’ roll revival band known as the Rockec Ivo Pesaka. He died in Prague from complications following a heart bypass surgery in 2011, he was 66. In Ivo’s later years, he was in a duo named Dýza Boys.
As many of you will know, Edward has been trawling through the Jammy Toast archives for posts to include on our other site; Classic Toast. Yesterday he discovered some posts from 2008 featuring an old friend of ours Jožin Z Bažin. Now Jožin is the creation of another old friend of ours Ivan Mládek. So for the purposes of those of you who have never head of Jožin or Ivan let me explain. Ivan Mládek is from Prague and in 1966 he formed his first – now famous – Banjo Band. In the 1970s Ivan and his Band had become famous in Czechoslovakia. By the mid-1980s, Ivan was the star of many Czechoslovakian television shows.
Yesterday morning our newsagent’s delivery of Daily Mirrors had gone astray and so we were left with no newspaper. Myself and some of the bears were sitting around my tablet reading the news on the BBC News website when we came across the following story. It has absolutely nothing to do with bears or any of the usual subject matter covered by Jammy Toast. There was just something about the story which fascinated us but also left us feeling upset and worried for both Kirsty and Zack. This is their story…
Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million books worldwide. This current batch of stories are taken from his second book; “More About Paddington Bear” which was first published in 1959. It was written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some more of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over…
Jammy Toast was reeling last night after allegations that some of our celebrity visitors are fake. Just because some of our readers are celebrity A-Listers does not mean we are making them up or fabricating comments in any way. In fact, we put these accusations to Razzi’s friend Mena Suvari and she said that there is nothing she enjoys more than reading Jammy Toast but she did go on to say, “I just wish Razzi was featured more than he is, because he is a very handsome bear.” Others have suggested that Elvis Presley could not possibly have left a comment because he is dead. Jammy Toast has confessed – following an investigation – it was not Elvis leaving the comments but it was his ghost.
Those of you who have been following Jammy Toast for any length of time will know quite a few of the family by now. There is Granny, The Chimpton, Da, Mumsie, Diane and Pauline to name but a few. However, there is one person who I don’t think we have ever mentioned and that is Great Auntie Joyce – Granny’s ugly sister. We always say that Granny is ugly but Great Auntie Joyce leaves Granny standing in the looks department. If any of you remember the old telly programme “On The Buses” you might remember Olive – Great Auntie Joyce is the spit of Olive.
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!
