Top Gear is quite possibly the funniest programme (not currently) on TV.

It's humour must be purely unintentional. Still, I may not see the erotic appeal of cars but I won't judge Clarkson, Hammond et al because of it.

Not at all. It's out to entertain. :)

The Romans' Christian vs. Lion fun originated from similarly noble ambitions.

*drags up thread* I was going to start a new one, but thought I might see if there was one already :) I'm reading Atonement by Ian McEwan, my revision notes for various subjects, my Spanish presentation I have to learn, and the odd interception of Book of Matches by Simon Armitage <3

Yes the 3rd member member of the gang is the pun-gent, he's the well mannered, but stinky mercenary.

"I am Legend" by Richard Matheson. Don't worry if you've seen the movie because it's absolutely nothing like its original text.
I also finished an anthology of I Am Robot by Isaac Asimov last month. It was a great read but you may have to be a science fiction fan. I think everyone could enjoy I am Legend though.

I'm reading The Kite Runner. It's amazing! Some woman on the bus took it upon herself to talk about it to me when I mentioned it to my friend. Also, all my lesson notes for revision and my Spanish speaking presentation to try and learn it by heart. :(

Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon.

It's my favourite film, so I thought I should read the book it's based on.

I am reading (althouh obviously not at this precise moment) Fifty Years of Hancock's Half Hour by Richard Webber. Highly recommended read.
