The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

I love Top Gear!

There were two amphibian car challenge episodes - one in a lake and one of which they cross the English Channel (or at least try to)


Top Gear is one of the most hilarious shows I've watched in a long time. Last night my entire family watched the show about Jeremy, Richard and James learning what it was like to be a truck driver! An absolutely classic Top Gear fun time. Great show.


"One observation I would have. Sailing. Really boring!"

Love it.

Clarkson is paid for being rude. He recently had to apologize to Gordon Brown the British PM for being offensive to him

Maybe my favorite show, right now.

One of the funniest things I've seen was the one about the car that was so small it could be wheeled into the elevator and driven to meetings.

First show about cars - or sailing - that my wife actually likes, too.

Mine too. I was fantasizing about "wouldn't it be cool if you could do a Top Gear about sailing?" Sadly I think it would be missing the adrenaline rush.

My latest favorite was where they did a tournament against the German Top Gear show. They managed to use every possible British stereotype about the Germans they could find, including showing up the event in Spitfires


We watched the episode about the tournament against the German Top Gear Show too! I laughed so hard my sides hurt! Our favorite line out of that show was:

"And then I heard something I have never heard before while racing."
"Jeremy! My arm fell off!"

My entire family was howling by this point! :-)
