Today we have some sad news to share. After today there will be no more of the Bob Scott cartoon Bear with Me featuring Molly and her Bear on Jammy Toast. Unfortunately, after today’s cartoon the format of Bob’s cartoon changes and although we could convert it to fit our requirements quite easily, that would be a copyright infringement and we have been stung by solicitors before. All we did last time was convert some artwork to black and white because – as you all know – bears can’t see in colour. According to the solicitors of the people concerned you would think we had attempted to set fire to the Mona Lisa – we are not falling for that one again.

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!

The World Is Due To End… Again

We survived the 2012 Mayan doomsday prophecy and now it seems Jean Dixon has warned that the world will end this year. Who is Jean Dixon, I hear you all ask. She was formerly an advisor to US Presidents and correctly predicted the assassination of John F Kennedy. She was one of the most famous self-proclaimed psychics and astrologers in America. She wrote seven best-selling books, including an autobiography filled with her predictions and a horoscope novel for dogs. Chillingly, seven years before the death of JFK, who was shot as he travelled in a motorcade through the heart of Dallas, she predicted he would be assassinated.

A Bat Confession

Before I start today’s post in earnest, I have a little confession to make; I do not like bats. In fact, I am scared stiff of anything that flaps wings anywhere near my head. I was initially totally unaware of my fear until Chimpton and Ananasty took me to Chester Zoo one summer’s day. I love the animals in the zoo; the elephants, tigers, lions, monkeys, wolves and, not surprisingly, even the bears. I ran around the place like a child on Christmas morning waiting to see what was in the next enclosure when eventually we came to the Fruit Bat Forest. Inside they have a Bat Cave which is totally in the dark and you can get up close to their colony of bats as they go about their nightly business. These impressive flying mammals spend their time flying, eating, mating and generally conducting their lives all under the cloak of darkness. I could just about see their silhouettes against the very dim ceiling lights when suddenly… a bat’s wing just gently touched the top of my head and – much to the delight of Chimpton and Ananasty – I screamed like a little schoolgirl and ran for cover!

Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye. Now this second day of February 2020 – 02 02 2020. The 134th annual trek of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. Punxsutawney Phil, the sear or sears, prognosticator of all prognosticators was awaken from his burrow. To the cheers of thousands upon thousands of his faithful followers from around the world. In Groundhogese, Phil directed the inner circle to his prediction scroll which reads… “It’s a Phil fantastic day in these beautiful woods, thousands and thousands in the Knob neighbourhood. You faithful followers are the best it’s true, who wouldn’t want neighbours just like you? Now my forecast on a day, that’s a palindrome, will cause some to cheer and some to moan. So do I hope you think it’s neighbourly because there is no shadow of me – spring will be early, it’s a certainty!”
