Sense of Humour Bypass

From the BBC:-
Jeremy Clarkson has been criticised for claiming he drove at 186mph on a public road, by a father whose son died when a speeding car crashed into his vehicle.
Sounds terrible. Go on...
The BBC's Top Gear presenter, from Oxfordshire, told a festival audience in Wales he reached the speed while driving a Bugatti Veyron in London.
186mph in London? Hmm....
When asked about driving the supercar, Clarkson, who lives in Chipping Norton, said: "I got a great speeding ticket. I think it was 186 in the Limehouse Link.
Apart from the fact that even reaching 186mph in a tunnel, in London is almost impossible, if you get caught doing 186mph by a speed camera, you will go before a magistrate, and they will ban you. There's no grey area at that speed.

Sterling job, BBC.
