There are many things Top Gear front-man Jeremy Clarkson could be labeled as. Celebrity? Check. Petrolhead? Check. Environmentalist? Um, no. Whenever Clarkson has gotten the chance to get some seat time in what might be construed as an eco-friendly automobile, he always seems to find plenty not to like... and that goes for the Toyota Prius, Honda Insight and even the Tesla Roadster.

Climate Rush, the same group that's vehemently opposed to the expansion of London's Heathrow airport, decided to let Clarkson know exactly how they feel about his carbon-spewing ways. According to the BBC, six women showed up at Clarkson's mansion in Oxfordshire in a horse-drawn carriage with a wheelbarrow's worth of manure, which was then dumped on the entertainer's front lawn.

Reports indicate that Clarkson was not home at the time of the dung dump and by the time police showed up the protesters had left the scene, though their stinky gift apparently remained for all to see. Thanks for the tip, Ben!

      Most people know that manure will and does burn everything it touches due to the heat coming from it. Soooo, the lawn will be ruined. Gardeners have to use manure that has been dried for a time so it won't burn their crops. Just a science lesson for all.

      Missing the big picture - six women in a HORSE DRAWN CARRIAGE got away!

      Were the bobbies on crutches?

        Astra Diesels, so basically yes.

        Aren't they all?

      I really thought environmentalists should know this: lawn grows on manure. So hopefully Clarkson realized this and just left it to fertilize. If they really wanted to ruin his lawn they should have poured oil on it or something. But that goes against their message --- so why are they even trying to mess up people's lawns?!

        This story is sh*t!
        ;)


        P.S. For the incredibly unaware, this is sarcasm!

        fertilizer for the whole neighborhood. free, courtesy of Jeremy Clarkson.
        • 5 Years Ago
        i'll tell you why-it was 6 women.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Cool. Free manure to go around! I'd share with the neighborhood too.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow. I'm sure they're quite chuffed.

      If someone trespassed onto my private property and vandalized it (even with 'natural' substances), I would demand their arrest and file a civil suit against them.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hope he sues them and buys a Hummer with the money.
      • 5 Years Ago
      They are lucky they did not do this in America, in the South.
      I have a feeling it would have ended differently for them and badly....

        AKboss, I really feel sorry for you if you believe everything on Top Gear. You do realize that it is an entertainment show first, and everything else second, right? Sure there are people here who wouldn't like such graffiti, but its unlikely anyone would do anything about it. I'm sure there are similar people in the UK. Both sets are minorities in their societies.

        But hey, keep believing everything you see on TV about " 'merca." We'll keep going on with our gay-beating, racist, shooting-everyone-in-sight ways. It's a wonder any of us are still alive, or economic, cultural, and political leaders, eh? Or why any immigrants still bother coming over to this "crappy" country.

        akboss... considering that the Top Gear folks were deliberately provoking "the natives" as it were... the fact that no guns were fired means the natives were being friendly. I'm sure there were no fewer than half a dozen firearms within easy reach of that "mob".

        Personally, I think they put the locals up to it.
