And here i was thinking that someone came up with a 5m $ reward for the one who beheads JC .. His comments seem to have evoked a controversy that only the danish cartoons could make it sound of lesser consequence..

JC has gotta find a way back, and who ever found supercar's sound as 'noise'? or sumtin?!! I wonder if all the people who opposed Top Gear don't drive cars and cause pollution..

Knowing JC and the amount of money TG probably makes for the BBC, I am more than sure that a solution to the problem will be found.
