You've gotta love Clarkson!
« on: 16/07/2008 09:48:29 »
The following are from Jeremy Clarkson's columns in The Times.

Recently Annie Robinson and I dreamt up a TV show that would serve as an antidote to the endless parade of hectoring and finger-wagging programmes we get today. Instead of running down the street after a cowboy builder who’d charged an old lady a million quid to build a fireplace, we would go after the victims.

It was to be called Sucker and it would celebrate the ingenious while pointing the finger and howling with laughter at the stupid, the gullible and the fat.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And only a couple of weeks ago I was “blasted” for enjoying a gin and tonic while at the North Pole.

There’s a constant bombardment for me to sit up straight, eat my greens, comb my hair. It drives me mad. Honestly. Next time James May and I are at a Pole, we’ve decided he’s going to mainline heroin and I’m going to shoot a baby polar bear in the face. For fun.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whenever I let my mind wander, I become quivery-lipped and frightened thinking about all the things I could do 10 years ago that I cannot do now. I may not smack my children, for instance, or talk on a mobile telephone while driving or put too much salt on my mashed potato or smoke at home if my cleaning lady objects or give my donkey a tender burial or encourage my dogs to kill rats. And if I put the wrong thing in the wrong-coloured dustbin, I’m likely to spend the next five years digging tunnels.

Whilst at times he is funny, as he is here, he is overall an overindulged loudmouth.

I can think of two on this forum. I sent a Clarkson Quotes book to JimBob as I thought they were kindred spirits!

I like his humour and politically incorrect way of speaking as he sums things up well and agree with DoctorBeaver.

That photo shows he's a drinker with a beer belly and not covered in layers of fat from the over consumption of food. The rest of his body profile is fairy lean, cheeks, chin bum and arms show little excess fat..for his age!

Around the bend, by any chance, Doc?

Mad man you are showing a very unhealthy interest in Clarkson's body that will result in snow blindness!

When Clarkson jumped in the sea all the whales sang "we are family!"

You lie! Whales don't like Sister Sledge and would never ever sing any of their songs.

It all started when Joni Sledge started cheering the baddies in Free Willy. There just happened to be an Orcan film critic at the back of the cinema and he told other whales all about Joni. After that, anywhere the Sledge sisters went, they were bombarded with Eskimo blubber hurled by cetacean activists.

I stand corrected. However, I bet some of that blubber was cultivated on Clarkson's gut. They farm him you know for just that purpose.

Yes, they do. They sell it to peripatetic chandlers.

That's not a snorkel. He'd just spotted Kirsten Scott-Thomas  :D

Is a big chin a prerequisite for the Top Gear job ?

going to watch Clarkson on Top Gear tonight. I'll see if his ears looklike they are burning. Lets hope he doesn't google himself too much.

OK who am I kidding, he's an egomaniac, I'm sure he does it all the time.

It's not muscle wastage then? [^]

Clarkson has just told some news readers that his dream is to have lesbians burst into the studio and chain themselves to the desk.

I think a lot of ex-clarkson girlfriends are now lesbians.

Clarkson also told a Japanese girl that Bill Oddie is good at sniffing out Beavers. Let that me a warning Doc. Man traps at the ready. I hate Bill Oddie.

I hate Bill Oddie.

Bill may be a panurus biarmicus, but "hate" is a bit strong.  You won't get Kate Humble's job with that attitude.
