A massive sculpture of Jeremy Clarkson’s head has been called “a tacky monstrosity” after a family won a competition to have it in their garden.

Zohaib Alam, 15, entered The Grand Tour Twitter competition for his dad to win the 6ft fibreglass sculpture of the former Top Gear host’s head.

“My dad loves the show and I love those types of programmes too,” the teenager, who lives in Salford, told the Manchester Evening News.

“I tweeted the show after I saw the competition and suddenly I got a tweet back to say our front garden was big enough for Jeremy Clarkson’s head.

“I know Jeremy Clarkson has got a big head but we said it would fit after we found out the dimensions. It was amazing when we found out that we had won. It’s the first time we’ve won anything.”
In gentler times it would have been covered by a sheet lest it frighten the horses.

BYOB BYOR BYOD

BYOB, bring your own bottle, right?

Nope, bring your own bullet. BYOR, bring your own rope. Or, BYOD, bring your own drugs. Your own lethal injection drugs. Really, you can't make this shit up.

Who do these penguins play against? The Sharks? Sound like a one sided game.

Entire U.S. Senate to go to White House for North Korea briefing

...by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

This is probably not good.

This would be a really good time for someone to find a way of blocking the president's twitter access.

I'm no Trump supporter, but, fuck Todd Rundgren, and anyone else who wishes to impose their politics on me. I wasn't going to his fucking slapped together show anyway, but, still...

I don't give a fuck what your politics are, shut up, make music, and bang on yer drum all day ya whiny bitch.

Nyah.
