It is, officially, the end of an era. Not "official" in the sense that the BBC has announced Jeremy Clarkson is forever gone, but in Clarkson’s own announcement on Twitter of having completed his last lap of the Top Gear test track. After finally recieving word of his firing from the BBC, Clarkson arranged a last lap of the track — and auctioned off the passenger seat for charity. Fair warning: Direct quotes from Clarkson ahead. If you’ve got a problem with F-bombs, now’s the time to seek shelter.
Ed’s note: In the interest of decency, we will paraphrase the F-bombs. But far be it from us to hinder Jeremy’s inimitable style, so in the interest of accuracy, you’ll see where they all went.
