So, Clarkson and the boys have been up to no good again, this time accusing the Mexicans of being "lazy, feckless, flatulent and overweight", then referring to their food dishes as being like "refried sick". Whereas I can fully agree that Mexican food is indeed awful, stuff that should be cold often hot and stuff that should be hot often served cold, I think the lazy stereotype is unfair. The only people who do physical graft on the west coast of America are illegal Mexicans. Clarkson, of course, knowing the Daily Mail readers who ousted Jonathan Ross for similar banter are after him, deliciously invited Jonathan Ross on to the following show (with Mexican wrestling mask) to do the reasonably priced car lap, the apologies expected not forthcoming. Things didn't improve for Clarkson's lawyers in the same episode, opening up with a segment on Albania, where the boys were road testing a new Rolls Royce, insinuating that the country is full of stolen cars, gangsters and corrupt cops, simulating the bundling a fat Albanian mobster into the boot of a Zastava. Where as the Mexicans are some of the hardest working people in the world and so unfairly picked on by comedians it's all true about the Albanians, Tirana the mob capital of Eastern Europe and an incredible one-in-three of all stolen cars in the European Union ending up there. On the same show it was pointed out that one of David Beckhams cars also car turned up out there and that the Albanian foreign minister who signed an accord with Greece to try and cut down on the amount of cross-border criminality turned out to be driving a stolen Mercedes! Not surprisingly there have been no complaints from the Albanian consulate to Top Gear as yet. They either got the joke or enjoyed the fun publicity or the BBC gave them a suitcase full of money to avoid the boys being nudged off the side of a cliff road when they were least expecting it, Italian Job style! The Top gear boys have form on portraying certain Eastern European countries as theivedoms, Romania getting both stereotype barrels back in 2010, which, of course, was very funny. The funniest things are often the taboo subjects, the stuff we are not supposed to laugh at, why The Office and Top Gear were and are such huge hits around the world. When Ricky Gervais slipped his beautifully nuanced cringe comedy out it was if someone important in the telly high court suddenly said we could snigger at certain stereotypes behind our hand once again and it felt good, laughing the greatest therapy of all, Top Gear deciding we don't have to put our hands in front of our mouths anymore. But the Daily Mail nimbi's are getting organized and the end is near for Top Gear on the BBC, 5000 complaints alone for the recent skit in America where the boys perform a spoof drive-by killing of the Stig after the stunt driver turned traitor with his book. It is unclear if the complainers were from the same gangland community that 95% of victims are in and as yet I can't recall fat middle-class and aged white folk shooting up likewise Americans with an Uzi to date.
