top gear

You may guess that Mr P picked the entertainment for the afternoon.

Is there anything more satisfying than the sight of Jeremy Clarkson suffering? (I feel a gen crossover coming on, full of Giles and James May rolling their eyes at him simultaneously, plus a strange Buffy-Stig alliance.)

PS: So, I dunno, is it new Buffyverse kink meme time?

You post the meme, I'll catalog the responses! I liked our As Few Rules As Possible approach last time.

LOL!

There's something...strangely attractive...about Mr Clarkson...
I enjoy his Top Gear persona far more than I feel I ought to. I enjoy alpha males, really. From a distance.
You should try one of his books.

"The World According to Clarkson" actually made the inside of my cheek bleed - I'd been biting it whilst reading the book on a train to stop myself laughing out loud.

Funny as all hell. And worringly...I agreed with most of his opinions...
I gave Mr P one of Clarkson's books for his birthday. I need to ask him what he made of it! Clarkson's a funny guy and a biting satirist. The lingering uncertainty I always feel about whether he means it or not adds to the pleasure.

I would read that every day of the week and twice on Tuesday.
He is the most miserable man alive!

I definitely rewatched the Vietnam episode a few times.

Did you catch the one where they raced to find the best method of crossing London? Buffy and the Stig meet on the tube. Awkwardness ensues.
I think the Vietnam special is my favorite Top Gear ever, and I've seen nearly all of them by now. It's got everything I want from TG, and it doesn't even have any cars in it.
I just watched series 4 ep 2. A hypnotist convinces Hammond of all sorts of ridiculous things. MUST SEE.

Please???? Would a bribe help? :)
I'm writing up notes for it. Post-series setting. Hammond: kidnapped by vampires who have been egged on by Clarkson and his big obnoxious oafish mouth. James May remembers this bloke he met at an Austin-Healey rally a few months back, who said something baffling about vampires that May didn't take seriously at the time. May calls Giles, who arrives with Buffy, Xander, and Willow. Stig is of course a demon and Buffy nearly slays him, then decides he's a mostly non-evil demon. Amusing set piece with Buffy driving a car while Stig goes quietly insane in the back seat. etc. etc. divers alarums....
Because of your comments about Top Gear the husband and I started to watch it and now we're addicted. The Vietnam episode had me rolling on the floor. And the one where they race across London to see who can make it to the airport on various modes of transportation was hysterical.

I am SO looking forward to BBC America showing the new season.
