The list of people, organizations and even countries that have been offended by Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson is long and illustrious: Mexico, Christians, Muslims, the Romanian government, environmentalists, women, Poland, Scotland, Boy Scouts and Catholics, Tesla, his own countrymen, family counselors, Christians (again), labor unions, Indians, Wales, handicapped people, cancer victims, black people, Wales (again), hackers, environmentalists (again), Americans, and his own countrymen (again).

There's at least one notable and somewhat easily offended group that had stayed off that list: PETA.

That surprising omission has now been filled. Clarkson elicited howls from PETA after posting a picture of a just-crushed mouse on Twitter. It seems the rodent was turned into mincemeat during filming in Moscow.

In related news, Clarkson's very next tweet was also from Russia, this time in a restaurant. The picture, which was of a table with wine glasses, an ashtray and a lit cigarette, was captioned: "Perfection. Civilised country. Russia." So... next up to be offended? Anyone who doesn't like toxic smoke around their food and drink, perhaps.

      Dosn't PETA have larger fish to fry? Oops, that might not be correct either.

      It is SOOOO good to have anyone, anyone say anything they way most of us think, even in humor in this over politically correct world. So who makes all this fuss, those concerned or the media...hmmm? and yes, you all miss the point, it is comedic entertainment and NOT real....we all know that, well maybe except PETA et al. We need Clarkson as Prime Minister/President. ......and by the way you forgot truck drivers.

      I worked in the animal medical field assisting in surgery spaying/neutering cats and dogs and can vouch that they are developmentally and emotionally unstable people (mostly women). Cheap, obnoxious, rude and passive-aggressive. Our hospital has been stiffed for quite a few bills from this organization (PETA). I have had the joy of kicking them out and blacklisting them.

      Clarkson is hilarious. He's refreshingly not politically correct and and "equal opportunity" offender.

      PETA is just doing this for media attention. You are giving it to them. Stop it.

        In that sense, they're like any other radical group or organization.

      Don't know why PETA thinks they have the right to be PO'd about ANYTHING. After all, they actively euthanize animals they so-called "rescued." And do it in droves! Talk about HYPOCRITES.
