Clarkson apologises to cold food

JEREMY Clarkson has officially apologised to cold cuts and salads after saying they were not good enough for him. 

The former Top Gear presenter, who lost his job after repeatedly punching a parma ham while calling it a “lazy Italian shit”, has paid a six-figure sum in compensation.

He said: “I would like to say sorry, once again, to the pre-cooked meats involved in that incident and its regrettable aftermath.

“I now realise that, much as I may have fancied a full roast dinner after a few pints, by the time it had arrived I’d have stared at it woozily before returning to my room for crisps.

“If I had only considered the selection of buffet bites available, which included lemon and honey chicken skewers or tortilla chips with guacamole, the situation could have been resolved amicably.

“I would also like to make it clear that the abuse miniature pork pies have suffered since the incident, which caused them to leave Twitter, was unwarranted. They do a great job of providing convenient meaty sustenance.”

Meanwhile, replacement Top Gear presenter Chris Evans is already facing criticism after secretly-filmed footage emerged of him hitting a Scotch egg with a cricket bat.
