Proving he's as bull-headed as we suspected, Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson was reportedly in a head-on collision during filming for the show. Says the Mirror, Clarkson "suffered minor injuries to his legs, hand and back." What, exactly, are minor injuries? Clarkson elaborates: “My right index finger looked like a burst sausage, my left shin was fatter than my thigh and my back felt like someone had driven over it with a pile-driver.” For her part, Clarkson's wife claims "my husband is fine." In other words, shut up Jeremy, and put on a band-aid. So, just for the record: Jeremy Clarkson is not dead. But, if he were, we've got a very nice obituary. [FinalGear]
Of course now he's going to compare his wreck with Hammond's trashing of the jet-powered dragster and claim his was a greater feat of survival through shear driving competence and point in fact of being taller. To which Hammond will just sit there bug-eyed and mouth agape as usual and Mays will announce that, to his chagrin, Jezza does "have a point."
