Razzi always says that you see prettier girls walking around town than you see on television or magazines and in this case we have to admit he is spot on. A girl who works for McDonald’s is causing hearts to flutter around the world with her wide-eyed looks causing people to flock to see her in real life after she became an online viral star. Wei Han Xu has soared to online fame after she was noticed under the golden arches in Taiwan.

Some of you may have noticed that some prestigious companies have “By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen” on their products and stationary. These companies are Royal Warrant Holders; they are “united by their commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence”, to The Queen, Prince Phillip or Prince Charles. We thought it was about time The Bears gave out Bear Warrants to people and companies who supply excellent service and products to the bears here at Jammy Toast. We do not accept any form of advertising here at Jammy Toast but we do believe in acknowledging companies who have provided us with excellent services and so today we would like to recommend

Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am great uncle to all the bears, mostly because I am a very old bear because I was bought for The Bearkeeper by his Grandparents on the day that he was born. That means I am currently 54 years old. I can remember many things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I am going to write about on my occasional column. I will tell you of the things that happened not just to The Bearkeeper and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else I can think of.

There is nothing more we love here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…

Friend of Jammy Toast, Steven Seagull, made a cheeky snatch for fame taking a stolen camera for a tour round the bay. German tourist Martin Lozano had set the camera down on a ledge to capture some shots of Steven Seagull preening himself. But Steven being the inquisitive creature that he is, suddenly got a lot closer than expected and made a quick grab for the photographic equipment. He then took off, with the unsuspecting travellers shouting after him.

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 today 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!

The most searched for thing on the internet is cats. With more than two million videos posted to YouTube featuring the domestic feline, at Jammy Toast we are asking ourselves why? Furthermore, a new exhibition called “How Cats Took Over The Internet” has opened at the Museum of Moving Images in New York looking at just this riddle. The exhibition looks at the history of how they rose to internet fame, and why people like them so much. Almost half of all original YouTube videos are of people’s pets, and around 26 billion views are just for cats, making them the single most popular category. Some cats have even become famous, and earn millions of pounds after their owners posted their pictures online. So how did cats become so popular? We decided to take a closer look…

Afew people think that we are a little crazy here at Jammy Toast for donating so much time to looking after our otherwise homeless bears. However, we have come across someone who is much worse than us – in fact, if you stop and think about it, he is probably certifiable. A top engineer has devised a formula to aid budding players of Poohsticks – one of Jammy Toast’s favourite games which was first devised by Winnie the Pooh. The formula uses area, density and a drag coefficient to help competitors find the perfect twig. It was written by Dr Rhys Morgan, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, and is to accompany a new book called Poohstickopedia.
