Idiot of the Day

Eduardo Medina Mora, Mexican ambassador to London, who apparently has never seen an episode of Top Gear until he saw the one about Mexico.

He wrote a letter to the BBC, complaining about --to be honest-- some decent Mexican jokes. The offensive content?
"Why would you want a Mexican car? Because cars reflect national characteristics don't they?," said Hammond as they discussed the Mexican sports car, the Mastretta.

"Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

The trio then described Mexican food as "refried sick" before suggesting Mexicans spent all day asleep.
Come on, Eduardo, that's funny. You should hear the stuff they say about everyone else.
