Because my wife tells me I have started sounding like Jeremy Clarkson. :p

I have caught myself screaming "Why won't you work!" at the computer. Oh and I even used James' "That's a ticket to a festival of plastic death" at work once.

You and your friends challenge each other to see who can find the best used car for under $1000, and take it on a series of 'tests'.

You wear a white jumpsuit, white tinted helmet, and never talk.

After watching [10x3] you immediately went searching for a Peel P50.

When you get cut off by a bloke in a Ford Contour and you yell out "You fecking bastard and your Mondeo!" and then rant on about it for the next 8 miles, Clarkson style.

Or say things like "bloke", pronounce it "stooped", call someone a "drunkard", and say it as "aluminium" "coup-A" or "saloon".

When you (Americans) tell someone to put their bags in the boot - and they just stand there looking at you, but you don't know why.
