The Very Thought Of You

All around Jammy Toast yesterday, the bears were watching the World Cup Quarter Final between England and Sweden. After the England victory, a rather rowdy party broke out last night and many of the bears are a little worse for wear today, including Flat Eric – who is a little flatter than usual. So there is no-one available to write the usual Musical Sunday. I was going to write the post for Eric but then I had a brainwave – or at least I think it is a brainwave. The brainwave is that if anyone has a song which always reminds them of a past event, then if they send us in the story we will publish it and also feature the song. This is probably never going to happen because you Toasters are a fickle lot. You complain about our choice of songs but we have always said give us a suggestion and we will try and feature it for you. It never happens though, so let’s see this time. To get the ball rolling, I will feature a song and memory for you to give you an idea of what I mean. Here goes…

Flash Mob #2

Alittle while ago we introduced you to the phenomenon of the Flash Mob. In case you have forgotten, a Flash Mob is a group of at least ten people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act – dance or sing a song – for a brief time, then quickly disperse. It is usually performed for the purposes of entertainment and are organised via social media. The term was coined to reference the way the mobs assemble. As always happens, big business has jumped on the back of this spectacle and many Flash Mobs have been organised to promote a company or product. Air Lingus organised one at Dublin airport which was particularly good.

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!

Our Granny #19

Granny has been pretty quiet of late and – although we did post a story last month – generally she has been on her best behaviour. This has all ended recently and she has been surpassing even her own abnormal conduct. Here at Jammy Toast we do actually worry about her sometimes, especially when you come home and there she is hanging out of a bedroom window cleaning the glass. She leans out that far we are just waiting for the day that she ends up falling out of the window and is found swimming with the ducks here in Birkenhead Park.

Our Funniest Ever Comedy Sketch

Ask people what their favourite comedy sketch is and you will get hundreds of answers. Monty Python – The Dead Parrot Sketch, The Two Ronnie’s – Four Candles, Mr Bean getting his Mini out of the car park without paying, The Goon Show – Eccles Falling In The Water, Abbot & Castello – Who’s On First and many, many more. So the question has to be asked; what is Jammy Toast’s all-time favourite comedy sketch? With our love of comedy, that is probably the hardest question we could be asked but we will have a go.

Carved Bear Chases Woman Motorist!

Ruth and Geoff Strickland pictured with the bear.

Aten foot tall carved, wooden statue of a bear has stood at the roadside guarding the entrance to Britain’s smallest town, Llanwrtyd Wells, for fifteen years and all has been well. That is until a stupid woman car-driver crashed her car and blamed the bear. What did the bear do? Did it run amok in the road causing the woman to swerve to avoid it? Was it growling menacingly at her as she drove past? No, it just stood there in the same place as it has done for fifteen years. The terrified driver said the bear scared her as she drove past and so now the Highways Agency say it will have to be torn down and relocated.
