Stewart Lee: “Why I despise Richard ‘The Hamster’ Hammond the most.”

Jeremy Clarkson’s fawning sidekick Richard Hammond has emerged more or less unscathed from another high speed prang.

    DICK THE HAM indeed, a crasher of cars
    heid- rather than old banger, see-er of stars,
    what a lot of money the rotter must have got
    (the open road leads to the used car lot?)
    who has earned not even (pointless as his life) his scars
    celebrating an enormous waste of cash,
    air and other resources — must work on my lash …

    Top Gear, at the sign of the triple arse —
    three automata combining in a farce
    which much self-amuses piles of expensive trash.
    The horrors such confusions can keep hidden
    testing mechanical performance as bidden
    — all other considerations overridden —
    the team of dustbin, refuse cowp and midden.!
