Another 4th / 5th rate nation has had their particular Outrage bus “First Paraded” and warmed up.
After the “man gets nuked twice” jokes from TV program QI that upset poor old Japan a few weeks ago, now Mexico is getting all upset!
(This has now resulted in poor old Mr. Fry not being able to go to the land of Nippon)
Now it is the turn of BBC’s VERY popular show Top Gear.
Reviewing the Mastretta on Sunday’s show, Hammond said: “Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat.”
And guess what??? The ambassador got a shitty on about it!
The ambassador had demanded an apology, calling the remarks “offensive, xenophobic and humiliating”.
Apparently he should not have heard it as..
Jeremy Clarkson had said he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.
Well lets look at some facts from the CIA World Factbook
Popluation 112,468,855 (July 2010 est.)
GDP: $1.56 trillion (2010 est.)
GDP Per capita: $13,800 (2010 est.)
OK and now ….
The United Kingdom
Population: 62,348,447 (July 2010 est.)
GDP: $2.189 trillion (2010 est.)
GDP Per capita: $35,100 (2010 est.)
So that would make the Mexicans two and a half times more lazy feckless & generally useless than an equivalent UK person (and remember I have worked in local government so I KNOW how bad things are here!!)
I believe I rest my case!!!!
Love & Blessings to you all
