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!

Kill Two Birds…

Razzi and I are not really great followers of fashion but we have both agreed there is something to be said for the new design beach shorts. You can never trust the weather here in England, so we can both see the benefit of plastic beach shorts – Cool for the sunny days but provide some shelter if you get caught in a shower. I promise we have not made this up, they are really something that exist – and they can be yours for just £22.42. They are definitely designed to cause a strong impression when we both hit the beach and are a change from the usual swimming trunks.

Guest Bloggers

One of my favourite things here on Jammy Toast has been the introduction of guest bloggers. Andreaa Angel, Pot Noddle and Lisa “W” have all started regularly contributing to Jammy Toast and furthermore, they all seem to be popular with you, our readers – or Toasters as we refer to you all. I initially asked the terrible trio to write something every week/month for inclusion and they have all proven true to their word. Although they are perfectly free to stop writing for us at any time, there is a slight pressure to produce the goods every month. This I feel might put others off from also wanting to contribute to the annals of Jammy Toast. Working on the old adage that everyone has at least one good story in them, maybe some of you feel like you could write something for inclusion here but without the pressure of me chasing you for stories every month. So this is exactly what we are going to try – one-off stories from you, our toasters.

Our Granny #29

Imay have mentioned this before but our Granny is a bit heavy-handed with the old Dysons. I use the word “old” as a euphemism because any Dyson we ever own never actually becomes old here at Jammy Toast. We have only gone through three so far this year and today Granny has been out and bought another one. We have to have one for upstairs, one for downstairs and one for the stairs themselves… and don’t forget the animal one – we do have a few bears here at Jammy Toast and they do shed fur at this time of years. However, as is usually the case with Granny, buying a new Dyson is not as straight forward as it sounds. She actually had a little sneak out of the house when she thought no one was looking but I caught sight of her trying to close the front door quietly and knew damn well where she was going.

There Was No Uncle Joe!

As regular followers of Jammy Toast will know, we are great fans of Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls. We even awarded the sweets a Bear Paw Seal of Approval back in 2016. Well it turns out the makers of the boiled sweets have been undertaking an investigation into the true identity of their Uncle Joe mascot only to discover that he didn’t actually exist. The traditional mints first made in the kitchen of a Victorian terraced house 125 years ago, features a friendly faced man dressed in a top hat and tails on their tin. Originally it was believed the man was a relative of the Santus family who first made the mints for miners in Lancashire. Now, after years of research, managing directors John Winnard, 62, and his brother Antony, 60, have discovered that there was no Joseph in the Santus family.
