Ok, so you know all about my Top Gear addiction and you know that, despite the fact I think he more than slightly resembles a weasel, I have a new found thing for David Tennant. What you might not know is that, while seemingly unrelated, these two things are not entirely separate. The Stig, it would appear, once helped Doctor Who ’round the track in the reasonably priced car. Yes, snowflakes, it’s true. queen flake was able to rip from the clutches of TiVo the episode of Top Gear where none other than the good Doctor appeared as a special guest. And, “clutches” would actually be a good word because, despite being coached by the man, the myth, the legend, The Stig himself, the good Doctor saw fit to, ahem, “damage” the reasonably priced car. Somehow, the weasel, a man who can travel through time and space, couldn’t see fit to find third gear when it was actually right underneath his long pointy nose.
Yes, you read that right but, in case you missed it, I’ll say it again (this time with feeling.)
That damned weasel, David Tennant, broke the reasonably priced car.
There. Got it out of my system. Actually, I didn’t. (You should know by now that “my system” is quite snarky and I have to rant way more than that for even the slightest of catharsis. Really, I do.)
You know what they say about people who break the reasonably priced car, don’t you? Let’s see, for starters, the wrath of the ancients will fall upon their heads. Their shoelaces will not stay tied, rabid squirrels will invade their homes. Food in their regrigerators will mysteriously spoil. Their own (personal) vehicles will start making that expensive knocking sound again and no-one will talk to them at parties. Broke the reasonably priced car. Who ever heard of such a thing? Geesh.
Well, in the weasel’s defense, I guess it’s entirely more “reasonably priced” now that he drove it.
Until next third gear gone bad…
