Lol he's right though. over 60% of the population is overweight, with about a third of them classified as "obese". And if politics tells you anything, it's that Americans want crap, but don't want to pay for it. This country is full of fat, lazy underachievers. That said, our teeth are straight.

I won't stray into politics, but will just add that even if what he says is true, it is rude to point it out in the manner he does. His boorish behavior is really just another example of the loss of civility and decorum in society that used to be the norm and not the exception.

Clarkson certainly isn't my cup of tea as they say.

But I'm guessing he pissed off someone pretty good to get that out-take on CNN and get comments from the Prime Minister.

Didn't he buy a Ford GT, then later it made an honorable mention in the Top Gear Worst Cars of All Time episode? HAHAHAHAHA!!! Sucks to be him.

The best Top Gear episode of all time is when they flew to the US and got a ZR-1, a CTS-V, and an SRT8 Charger? and first started ragging on them, then fell in love with them.

No one actually heard it.

The Mirror hired a professional company to examine the tape.... their examiner said it was a 76? % chance that's what he said.

Then he admitted to it
