That was a golden hour... [Jun. 23rd, 2008|08:57 pm]

Tonight's Top Gear was better than sex. They had to drive three second-hand across Africa, and it was the funniest thing I have seen in ages. Sharon laughed so hard she nearly coughed up a lung.

That is all.

It's a shame the cow head didn't work the way they wanted it to.

I want to know if Hammond took Oliver home with him.

He Did!

(from Wikipedia)
[List of cars he owns]..a 1963 Opel Kadett (which he bought in a Top Gear challenge and named Oliver, he subsequently had it shipped to the UK from Botswana)

That's made my evening, that has.

Priceless! For a man so loved his car, that he took it home and sang it lullabyes.

Re: top gear

I don't fancy any of 'em, but I'd love to be able to come out with the same sorts of stuff that Jeremy does.

'It doesn't have brakes, it has milk bottle tops!'

'It sounds like Tom Jones, bending over to pick up the soap in the shower, in prison.'

And we enjoyed it immensely - even Rowan, who'd complained that he didn't like the show (largely pique because it replaces his beloved Mythbusters), was laughing so hard he nearly injured himself.

Ditto. On the laughing so hard and coughing up a lung that is. better than sex? I'm not sure, although I'd certainly be wiling to try watching that while having sex ... especially any bits with Hammond in it.

Richard Hammond reminds me of a pocket-sized David Tennant.

"oliver!!" and "This is my tent!!!" and world's worst comb-over.

I really thought the Opel was going to win it given that its body stayed relatively intact... that is, until it nearly drowned. Several true LOL moments.

It was amazing! One of the best episodes of a very funny show. And knowing Hammond took Oliver home gives me the warm and fuzzies :)

I loved the bit with the cow head, and when the steaks hidden in the engine bay caught fire..:P
