I think that's the male equivalent to the curious condition known as 'Futon Fanny'........in which case I can only sympathise with Hugh Grant!
(BTW: That's 'fanny' in the British sense!)

seriously though - how sad must those golfers be? if that was their genuine reaction, they really do need to get a life. i'd be honoured to have Clarkson & Co. arguing ahead of me, holding up the play.

I mean, TBH, golf's such a dull game, I reckon I'd welcome just about any kind of diversion on a golf course!
And what about the clothes they were wearing?????!!!!!!!

I just had to be first... I have never laughed so hard in ages, I thought the caravan holiday was hilarious, that just beats it hands down. I have also made a note never to go too Alabama with my partner, we'll be driven out before even crossing the border. America is a scary place :S

'Man Love Rules OK' - hahaha, driving through Alabama trying to get each other shot was quite possibly the stupidist - and funniest - thing the TG team has ever done (although i reckon i could have come up with more inciteful slogans lol)
That shower Jeremy had in his car had me laughing out loud - and just where the hell did he get that cow from?! theres no way that thing was lying at the side of the road!
i wish our American friends could see this ep - i'd love to know what they think of Jeremy's take on the States!
Posted 12 February 2007 - 02:35 PM
Did you see how BLOATED that cow was?????????
...........and when James ran over their dinner before..........and that squirrel was STIFF!!
..........say, you want cheese with that?
Yeah, Kat, never go to Alabama!!
I truly thought I had given myself a hernia when American Stig walked out of that trailer!

also loved they way Hammond kept bumping into May's car as well
i'm definately gonna have to catch one of the repeats on later this week
BTW, i picked up the new paperback Clarkson has out in the shops yesterday, 'Born to be riled'. its apparently a rerelase of a collection of his newspaper articles from 1999, but i've never seen it before. should be a great read!

I forgot to mention that for me the most side-splitting moment was when Jeremy started pulling manky bits of clothing out of his car (supposedly belonging to the last murder victim) and the stains on his seat were truly heinous! Believe me, I could smell that car long before he stuck a dead cow on it!

My most favourite part is through out the whole show is Jeremy and Hamster crashing into the rear of Slow Then the whole scene with Alabama and then finally when it started raining, all though I laughed from start to end, those were my fave parts.
Posted 13 February 2007 - 12:11 PM
I thought that Alabama sequence just had to be staged. I can't believe that people would get that worked up ove a slogan saying "Country & Western Music is Rubbish" and "NASCAR sucks"! They surely had to have gone to a "Rednecks R Us" casting agency!
Crikey, I mean, if that was for real.................

from my understanding, people from the south are deeply religious - and i think you may find that their main problem was with Hammond, who had 'Man Love Rules OK' written in pink on the side of their car! i think the first thing the woman asked was if Hammond and Clarkson were gay. That was bad in itself, but combined with all the other anti-south slogans riled them up no end lol
that sequence when they were on the raod and they picked up the truckers talking about hookers on their radio-thingys was a hoot as well!
Posted 14 February 2007 - 02:42 AM
The CB radio sequence was priceless also! Have you ever had a go on CB yourself?
Posted 14 February 2007 - 03:10 AM
Another funny moment i remembered from that ep was when Hammond and Clarkson had bought their cars were waiting for May, and i think it was Clarkson who said "he'll just say 'hello' and he'll get shot". Clarkson's impression of May's voice had me in stitches lol

"Moving about Norfolk, however, can be fun. I am used to having people point as i go by. Most shout, 'Hey, look, it's a Cosworth!' but in Norfolk they shout, 'Hey look, it's a car!' Everywhere else people want to know how fast it goes, but in Norfolk they asked how good it was at ploughing. The spoiler fascinated them because they reckoned it might be some sort of crop sprayer."
Sorry if that offended anyone from Norfolk, but thats right from the wit of Jeremy Clakson lol
actually, its from that Clarkson book i was talking about - i'd be happy to post anymore gems lol
Posted 17 February 2007 - 03:31 AM
Crikey, my dad was after a Cosworth once, until we wrestled him to the floor and pinched him until he squeaked and changed his aspirations to an Impreza, which was a slight improvement even if the early Imprezas looked like those pull-along vacuum cleaners without the hose!
Yeah, don't worry about offending anyone from Norfolk ~ they utterly deserve it! My parents met in an ampit called Cromer, and I spent the worst holiday of my entire life there! Norwich has the rudest market stall holders. Let 'em have it Jeremy!
Oh, and have you guys seen the trailers for Sunday's show? It should tweak the curiosity of a few here....the guys are going to paint a Robin Reliant white and turn it into a space shuttle!
..........and they're launching it!
Posted 25 February 2007 - 05:13 PM
clarkson finally got to meet his idol - lol at May and Hammond acting like little school kids trying to rile poor jezza
that tractor stuff was hilarious - what the hell was clarkson thinking trying to pull that aeroplane? and how about May dumping all those seeds in one go?
roll on next week!
