Four statues depicting omphaloskepsis.

It is a little known fact that Renault Bears have been held back through-out history because of omphaloskepsis. They could have been rulers of our planet if it were not for this one little thing. Many people consider that we are the ruling species on this planet because we have thumbs but there is something much more important to consider and that is omphaloskepsis. Some people have been known to practice omphaloskepsis for up to three hours a day. So just what is this mystery element? Omphaloskepsis or navel-gazing is contemplation of one’s navel as an aid to meditation.

Happy New Year and welcome to Jammy Toast. If you have been here before then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we are always welcome here at Jammy Toast. If this is your first visit then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save bears who have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and car boot or eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel loved and wanted – this is where we step in. Our job here at Jammy Toast is to save bears and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.

Zed in his brown paper bag.

We got an emergency phone call yesterday from The Chimpton to inform us there was a Renault Bear left abandoned in an antique shop in Birkenhead. Despite the fact I was dying with flu this was something we had to jump out of our sick beds for, so Razzi and I headed for the car. The Chimpton told us the shop was selling the bear for £10 but were not budging on the price. However, Razzi and I had a plan of action; I would go in first and explain to the shopkeeper that dealing in endangered species was against the law and if that didn’t work then we would send Razzi in to “have a word“.

Where Are All The New Bears?

Iwas asked yesterday why we haven’t rescued any new bears for quite some time and, when I checked, I realised that it has been a long time. In fact, the last time we had a new arrival here at Jammy Toast was back in January 2013. There are a few reasons for this but mainly it is as a result of our own success. When we first started saving bears from eBay auctions, for example, we quite often only had to pay 99p for a bear plus a couple of quid for postage. Then suddenly, people began to realise that someone was buying up all the Renault Bears and the prices shot through the roof. You cannot get a Renault Bear on eBay now for less than a tenner and they sell like hot cakes.

We received an email yesterday from someone who had just rescued a Renault Bear from a charity shop for the princely sum of a quid. Nothing unusual in that, we get people who have rescued Renault Bears contacting us on a regular basis. However, this time I suddenly realised something we have been neglecting on this site before now. How is somebody new to the world of Renault Bears going to know how to look after their new charge?

The Bears have decided to open their old website up again for anyone who wishes to visit them. The site is so any of the bears can post whatever they want which they either can’t post here on Jammy Toast or which they just want to share with anyone. The site will not be posted to every day but only when one of the bears feels they have something to say. Apparently I am banned from the bear’s website and they are responsible for running it themselves – that’s gratitude for you. If anyone feels like visiting them just click on the link above.

The Bears Get Their Own Blog

Some of the bears have been complaining that some months they do not get to write their columns because we are too busy with other things here on Jammy Toast. In fact, poor Einstein has not had anything posted since November simply because every month other more pressing issues come up or other bears get their posts in first. To solve this problem they have decided to start their own blog where they can post anything they like, whenever they like, and… I am barred!

Clark Kent is to quit the Daily Planet and copy the Renault Bears by becoming a blogger. Superman’s alter-ego Clark Kent has worked at the Daily Planet as a star reporter since the first Superman comic was published in the 1940s. He is tired of the newspaper reporting “soft” entertainment instead of the hard hitting stories about Metropolis. Clark is set to walk out on the newspaper in protest at the takeover at the Daily Planet by a conglomerate who just want to make money from the paper instead of reporting the news.
