Jeremy Clarkson in trouble for parking in handicapped space, joking about cancer

There's just no telling what sort of trouble the zany hosts of Top Gear will get into next. Recent months have seen Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond garner the ire of at least two world religions and an entire nation among other offenses. As you'd expect, the antics of the BBC trio don't look to be slowing anytime soon.
Clarkson has recently caused two stirs on separate occasions, first by parking in a handicap spot on TV and second by joking that he had a cancer scare at one point during his life. May also parked in a disabled space while the two were discussing the merits and drawbacks of two electric cars – a Nissan Leaf and a Peugeot iOn in the episode of Top Gear that aired in Blighty over the weekend.

The shot drew sharp criticism from awareness groups.

Clarkson's cancer comments came from his newspaper column, and the controversial comment arrived on the heels of BBC DJ Chris Evans recently announcing that he'd had a few growths removed from his bowel after a routine checkup. Clarkson joked that his doctors had found cancer in his bowels, too, but he hadn't had time to have the growths removed. Evans' father died from bowel cancer.

So, do these latest acts upset you, or are they much ado about nothing? Have your say in Comments.
