Clarkson Goes Vannin', Decides Not to Keep On Doing So

We don't know if we'd refer to a vehicle that 0-62 in 12.2 seconds by saying, "Bloody hell it's quick." But Jeremy Clarkson's an odd duck at times, what with his penchant for the quirks of his homeland. Still, it's often fun to watch him wind his way through thickets of simile and down the rivers of metaphor, launching slings and arrows of invective toward we Yanks. Every once in a while it gets a little tiring, and we have to admit that he stretched things mightily by comparing the the Volkswagen Transporter T30 TDI 174 Sportline to the Ram SRT10. If indeed, this is the UK's answer to Dodge's muscle pickup, we're definitely glad we're not British, Mr. Clarkson.
