    But the time difference remains constant from then to now regardless of the time zone, so technically it's still a day short.

    Then again, THIS thread is about Clarkson getting sacked, so it isn't reopening an old topic that was previously closed...

    I can't think of an American equivalent but the Canadian one (arguably minus the 'funny ' part) would be Don Cherry.

    Of course I read it, but there might be a bit of wiggle room here. We're only a day short on the fortnight thing, so that is up to the moderator's discretion.

    Why people get so worked up about the activities of a television personality is beyond me. Big freaking deal-I've got real-life problems of my own to worry about.

    A good way to get a thread closed is to have a meta discussion about thread closures. ;)

    Just keep on-topic and within the rules and I'm happy to let this thread continue. (Though I can't promise all the mods agree with me on that)

    I'd be more inclined to say the Canadian equivalent is Jian Gohmeshi. Once a respected presenter turns our to be a violent tosser.

    I always liked TG, too bad Clarkson was indeed the ape that Hammond always called him. I wonder if he punched the other fellow in his gentlemen's vegetables?

    The two parter they had in Burma last year (?) was stunningly beautiful. Really excellent production.

    Some of the more recent specials felt a bit too formulaic, but the earlier ones were pretty cool. I liked the Vietnam one a lot.
