top gear s hamster crashes again

The UK's Hello magazine reports that Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond crashed a BMW 330 Dti Sport during an endurance race at Silverstone. Even though the "Hamster" is famous for crashing a jet car at 288mph, sustaining brain injuries and returning to full health, this incident doesn't really have what it takes to make it to the top of the media pile (i.e. death or more serious injury). Hence Hello, a magazine predicated on the simple belief that millions of people want to see what kind of wallpaper celebrities prefer. But you really have to read Hecklerspray's blog on the story. Regarding the information that fellow Top Gear's top Jeremy Clarkson consoled the The Hamster after his latest fender bender, Stuart Heritage writes "Dear lord, hasn't the poor man suffered enough? But, yeah, thanks a lot for that last sentence, Hello – we're going to hold you personally responsible for all the screaming night terrors we're bound to be saddled with for the rest of our lives after summoning up that grotesque mental image."

    Two crashes? That's all? If I got the chance to drive the kinds of things he gets paid to [s]abuse[/s] drive, I would be a dark stain on a concrete enbankment somewhere.
