Read The World According to Clarkson

The World According to ClarksonEver found inside the M25 Clarkson hilariously attacks the pompous the ridiculous the absurd and the downright idiotic whilst also celebrating the eccentric the clever and the sheer bloody brilliantLess a manifesto for living and a road map to modern life The World According to Clarkson is the funniest book you'll read this year Don't leave home without it. From Top Gear's most entertaining presenter this book collects a bunch of short pieces Jeremy Clarkson wrote for the paperAs an Ugly American or at least an Average Looking American I'll say that there are definitely a lot of references I didn't really understand I don't blame the book for that I mean we're talking about London cultural references from 2001 Even the US euivalents probably wouldn't make a ton of sense to people around here If I compared a politician from 2001 to Limp Bizkit well let's just not even take it any furtherI wonder if Americans really are so bad about learning other cultures Or to put it differently is this one of the few cases where it's not so much our faultConsiderA Forbes article from 2013 pointed out that the US is the only Advanced economy in the world that does not have any mandated paid vacation Additionally US law does not enforce any holiday vacation while other advanced economies mandate between 5 and 13 these in addition to the reuired paid holidaysApparently there are also 5 countries that pay HIGHER wages for vacation days to help offset expenses incurred while traveling Consider AlsoWhen it comes to sheer size it's no small feat just to get across the US In fact if you lay Texas over Europe you'll cover parts of France Belgium The Netherlands Germany Switzerland the Czech Republic Austria Italy and just a bit of Poland for good measureTexas is a big ass state but it's only 8 10% of the entire US landmass depending on whether you count Alaska and Hawaii I'm not trying to use the old argument that other countries are too far away I don't know why they built Spain way the hell over there but what's a fella to doWhat I am trying to say is that culturally your traveling miles go a lot further in Europe than they do in the US You can make your way to a lot of very different spots with their own much older cultures while actually putting far fewer miles under your beltConsider Finally The Dollar is about75 Euros It's been this way or worse since I've been old enough to travel on my ownI'm not suggesting that any one of these factors should prevent Americans from exploring the world When you consider as is done in some of the book's last essays how much easier travel has become with the rise of the jet engine there's not much excuseexcept when one considers that the average American is dealing with all three of these factors at best I feel pretty strongly that most of the people I know most of whom are Americans AT LEAST as ugly as I am would be happy to visit places outside the US for extended periods Given the opportunity many many would go But I have to say it limits the desire to learn about a culture when you'll only read about it in books and see brief glimpses on TV It's tough to learn French when you figure you'll maybe get to Paris for four days sometime in your life Or shudder CanadaI feel The System The Man The Whatever It Is in America really lends itself to jumping on a plane for a few hours spending two days a couple states away somewhere that has beaches if you don't have those or somewhere that has nice beaches if you have suck beaches and then coming back after a long weekend Anyway for better or worse Top Gear is my primary exposure to European culture at this point in my life God help us all

What’s that You can’t hear me Brrrm brrrmmm BRMM Well I’m living a hundred yards from the first Formula 1 Grand Prix of the season and it’s bloody noisy I can – vrm vrrrm VROOM – hardly hear you either so we’re just going to have to pay attention aren’t we More attention in fact than we usually doFirst I want to start with a word from my sponsor Ferrari who is paying me to go down the road to write this review over breakfast as they know a writer needs a bowl of porridge and a bit of peace and uiet The word from Ferrari is this would I mind – and not to make this dependent for one moment upon the fact that the caramelised bananas on top of my porridge is something for which they’ve footed the bill; nope they insist that my review stays independent despite their financial investment in my wellbeing – would I mind if Jeremy Clarkson put in a bit of a foreword to this review Of course I can say no or yes In fact looking at the last sentence I suspect no would mean yes and vice versaHello This is Jeremy Bloody Clarkson here; that’s right Jeremy – there’s nothing wrong with boys getting about in fast cars around a track – Clarkson It’s called having fun and any bleeding heart liberals out there who have a problem with that can leave right now Go on Go and find a fox to be friendly with and if it lives anywhere near me tell it to stop eating my chickensAnyway I’ve have a look around this goodreads site A lot of wanky smart arses if you ask me Half of it doesn’t even make sense I mean look at This guy’s had a university education At my considerable expense He’s a doctor for God’s sake He’s probably allowed to say what’s wrong with me Doctor Rayner A PhD in linguistics Well You’d think he’d be capable of putting a few words in his review wouldn’t you I mean what is the point of a book review without any words in it anywayAnd another thing Why is it that all the reviews of my book are two lines long ‘He’s funny’ ‘He makes me laugh’ Well yes thank you I already know I do that It’s what I get paid for It’s why I’ve got a very large house in the country and a fox chicken problem I was expecting insights though ‘What I’ve learned about life from Jeremy Clarkson’ That sort of thing I have no doubt this review here by NGE will be differentBut before I hand it over to her this thing about her not getting enough I’ve looked at the pictures in her profile and frankly my estimation of chaps who read is going down all the time She’s got a bunch of male friends on this site – what’s wrong with you all for God’s sake Stephen – you have a harpsichord The girl loves boys with harpsichords I know that to be a fact because she asked me if I had one And Whitaker You live practically next door Paul and a few others well okay I see you are married and yes Thinking back to that thing I wrote in The Times the other day about threesomes with supermodels – well I won’t tell you exactly what my wife thought about it because I see content here can get flagged So yes issues there But Doctor Emmanuel Rayner You really have to pick up your act if you want to pull birds mate I’ve had a bit of a look at your stuff and it turns out that the reviews with words in them are worse than the one with the weird lines I mean what you’ve done with Shakespeare We start off with perfectly good sonnets from the best writer ever in the whole world and that’s what you’ve done with them Forget the poetry Get yourself a fast car doc You’ll have them lining upWhat I’ve learnt about life from Jeremy ClarksonBy NGEThis is what I don’t understand Like most people who hold views that we tend to label ‘conservative’ he is easy to understand What he says is what he does I don’t even know if we should give his views on global warming the compliment of being called sceptic He loves cars His views on global warming are conseuently derived from that If he is in one corner in the other are people probably pleased to label themselves ‘left wing’ who tell us global warming is this really important thing we have to believe in And the last thing you can say about these people is that what they say is what they do When I suggested in a discussion here re global warming last year that we should all be giving up unnecessary air travel – specifically I referred to chess and bridge tournament and conferences – not one person was willing to agree When I suggested it on my bridge blog ditto We are creatures of inertia and we don’t want to be the ones doing the right thing if nobody else is Fair enough But honestly Don’t turn your noses up at Jeremy Clarkson please The guy’s funny and he has the odd crusade in his life which is well worth being onNot least aspects of environmentalism I might add He has a thing about packaging and good on him I’ve been shoppping lately at a new organic fair trade shop locally sort of place and I’ve never seen so much packaging in all my life Clarkson routinely leaves loaded supermarket trollies and walks out – or so it is reported – I like that It’s probably than I do for the whole idea of helping out the environment Not that I’m a shining exampleHe thinks injured British soldiers should be treated better Absolutely He thinks we need a radically different attitude to mistakes This is so true We haven’t always perceived mistakes through the eyes of lawyers I don’t really understand how it is that we have permitted them to take over our sense of right and wrongAnd what about this he has never liked Tony Blair Now most of my ‘left wing’ friends did like Tonyand then didn’t What does that mean Me I couldn’t stand him from the start He seemed to me one of those loathsome new Labour types who look and behave exactly the same as the other side while paying lip service to the idea of caring about the things you pay lip service to caring about too That’s democracy at work I guess You do get what you wantI don’t actually have to prove he is funny do I He’s the sort of person girls like even though he’s sexist Yes this is a good example lifted from wiki and without a citation I might addClarkson is opposed to the opening up of the countryside to ramblers under the right to roam and became involved in a protracted legal dispute about access to a permissive path across the grounds of his second home on the Isle of Man since 2005 The dispute has since been resolved amicably with Clarkson accepting honorary life membership of The Ramblers' AssociationHe’s that sort of guy and if you’d just remember as you are jet setting from conference to conference or holidays or whatever you are avoidably jet setting to that you ARE doing that even though you know you shouldn’t bewell you’d find him funny too even though you disapprove of his straight forwardness I’m just saying here should you really be on your moral high horse in the first placeBut okay this is one I rather likedWillkommen and Achtung This is Austrian HospitalityA small tip The border between Switzerland and Austria may be marked with nothing than a small speed hump and the customs hut may appear to be deserted but whatever you do stop If you don’t your rear view mirror will fill with armed men in uniform and the stillness of the night will be shattered with searchlights and klaxonsI’m able to pass on this handy hint because last week while driving in convoy with my camera crew from St Moritz to Innsbruck a man suddenly leapt out of his darkened hut and shouted ‘Achtung’I have no idea what ‘achtung’ means except that it usually precedes a bout of gunfire followed by many years of digging tunnels I therefore pulled over and stopped unlike the crew who didn’tThe man white with rage and venom and fury demanded my passport and refused to give it back until I had furnished him with details of the people in the other car which had dared to sail past his guard towerI’d often wondered how I’d get on in this sort of situation Would I allow myself to be tortured to save my colleagues How strong is my will my playground learnt bond How long would I hold outAbout three seconds I’m ashamed to say Even though I have two spare passports I blabbed like a baby handing over the crew’s names addresses and mobile phone numbersSo they came back and the driver was manhandled from the car and frogmarched up to the stop sign he’d ignored His passport was confiscated and then it was noticed that all his camera euipment had not been checked out of Switzerland We were in troubleSo we raised our hands and do you know what The guard didn’t even bat an eyelid The sight of four English people standing at a border post in the middle of Europe in the year 2001 with their arms in the air didn’t strike him as even remotely oddWe have become used to a gradual erosion of interference with international travel You only know when you’ve gone from France into Belgium for instance because the road suddenly goes all bumpy French customs are normally on strike and their opposite numbers in Belgium are usually hidden behind a mountain of chips with a mayonnaise toppingBut in Austria things are very different Here you will not find a fatty working out his pension Our man on the road from St Moritz to Innsbruck was a lean front line storm trooper in full camouflage fatigues and he seemed to draw no distinction between the Englander and the Turk or Slav Nobody it seems is welcome in the Austro Hungarian empireThe camera crew who were very disappointed at the way I’d grassed them up and kept referring to me as ‘Von Strimmer’ or simply ‘The Invertebrate’ were ordered back to Switzerland And me For selling them out I was allowed to proceed to InnsbruckWhich does invite a uestion How did the guard know where I was going We had never mentioned our destination and yet he knew It gets stranger because minutes later I was pulled over for speeding and even though I had a Zurich registered car the policman addressed me straight away in EnglishThis puzzled me as I drove on and into the longest tunnel in the world This was puzzling too as it wasn’t marked on the map What’s happening on the surface that they don’t want us to seeFinally I arrived at the hotel into which I’d been booked but a mysterious woman in a full length evening gown explained menacingly that she had let my room to someone else And that all the other hotels in Innsbruck were fully bookedParanoia set in and took on a chilling air when I learn that one of the army bobsleigh people I was due to meet the following day had been kicked to death outside a nightclubI ended up miles away at a hotel run by a man we shall call ‘The Downloader’ ‘So you are an Englisher’ he said when I checked in ‘There are many good people in England’ he added with the sort of smile that made me think he might be talking about Harold ShipmanSomething is going on in Austria They’ve told the world that the Freedom Party leader has stepped down but how do we know that he’s gone and won’t be back Let’s not forget these people are past masters at subterfuge I mean they managed to convince the entire planet that Adolf Hitler was a German Most people here do think Haider will be back As chancellor And that’s a worryI’m writing this now in my room hoping to sent it via email to the Sunday Times but each time I try to log on messages come back to say it’s impossible Maybe that’s because The Downloader is up in his attic looking at unsavoury images of bondage and knives or maybe it’s because I’m being watched Journalists areEither way I’m nervous about smuggling text like this past customs tomorrow when I’m due to fly home I shall try to rig up some kind of device using my mobile phone hoping these words reach you If they do yet I mysteriously disappear for God’s sake send help I’m at the
