Top Gear in Mexico?

#2
Thankfully, it was only the Marxist BBC that apologised - so far at least.

Had to spiv Blair or the oaf Brown still have been in 'No. 10', then the 'quivering lower lip and the 'most insincere growl ever', would have beenejaculating apologies all over the media.

I believe they also described Mexican food as, "Re-fried vomit."

Sounds perfectly accurate to me. And since Mexico is not so much a country as a collection of drug gangs with business practices that would make the Mafia wince, I think the Top Gear boys were positively restrained...

If these ********* don't like the British sense of humour they should either **** off back to where they came from or turn off the bloody television!

Ooh, I 'm a bit miffed!

"I believe they also described Mexican food as, "Re-fried vomit."

For the record, Mr. May described it as "re-fried vomit with cheese on top", which is a fair comment. More importantly, who tipped off the Mexican Ambassador, who, at that time of night, would have been slumped over the remote control?

Mr Clarkson is adding a bit more fuel to his own fire..............

Quote
Despite earlier apologising for the show's 'feckless' comments, the loud mouth host then ended the column with his own joke about Mexicans: 'Mexico doesn't have an Olympic team... because anyone who can run, jump or swim is already across the border.'

Controversy sells. This will go down well with established viewers in the US, which the cynic in believes was the aim.

Apart from that, the truth hurts eh Pepe?

I heard a version of that joke years ago, "Why are there no swimming pools in Mexico? Because any Mexican who can swim is already on the US side of the Rio Grande!"

This has got to be a first. Common sense from the PC side of the street? "Trevor Phillips, head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, threw his support behind Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond". *Linky*

The Mexicans should probably be quiet lest someone decides to tell the truth about the place rather than the amusing Looney Tunes version - that as well as being feckless they are also incredibly corrupt to the point of parody, incapable of taking meaningful action against the Cartels and immensely barbaric if the routine mutilations are to be believed.
Perhaps the Aztec isn't that far below the surface after all.

Despite the flak and the pending lawsuit - Stig's car stereo played "going loco down in Acapulco" last night - class!
Even better - Bentley refused to put up a Mulsanne against the Rolls Royce Ghost and the Merc S65 on road test in Albania so they got a clapped out Yugo and referred to it throughout as the Mulsanne. Not a good move to piss off Top Gear, whether you are a south American country or the manufacturer of over-priced luxury cars.

I've just read that Steve Coogan has waded in with his two pence worth. He's called them casual racists and likened them to school bullies.

Bit rich coming from someone that made millions doing the same gags as Alan Partridge. Doesnt stop him appearing on the programme when he has something to promote the wretch.

(Sorry, no linky. Read it in todays Metro)

I read that last night too and it infuriated me no end... he's not even funny and his career has long since been on the wane! I hope they invite him back on the show again so he can be given a masterclass in wit.

As a norn ironer I often am the subject of thick paddy jokes and british tv often takes the mick out of us but we (generally) don't take it in bad humour. Also Britain is a place reknowned for this type of humour...the scots take the piss out of the english, the english take the piss out of the scots/irish/(france even!) and everyone takes the piss out of wales. Mexicans would do well to grow a thicker skin.

I found this one strange. Shouldnt Coogan be standing by a little leeway in comedy? And as for "According to Coogan, he (May) is guilty of effectively holding the coats of his two co-presenters while "they beat up the boy with the stutter"." When did it become illegal to beat up the kid with the stutter?

Who the **** is Steve Coogan? I've never heard of - and by the sound of it that's good thing!

Like I said before, if you don't like British humour either don't watch TV or piss off back to where you came from!

Hmmm, I think I might be getting a little riled now!
