    A skip is a dumpster, basically.

    Nah. Sod it. If I have to die, I`m going to make sure it`s as awkward as possible for everyone else. That`ll show `em.

    Jeremy Clarkson is a wanker of the First Water.
    Not only has he used his mothers death to write an article for financial gain. He is an out and out arrogant, self centred mean person.

    @RandomNoun We all have to die. If you want to make your death as awkward as possible, might I recommend jumping in the way of a high speed commuter train?

    durdikkimeng, not sure where that came from. He "plays a part" but I still don`t see anything from this article that would prompt your post. o.O

    it mentioned a small funeral with no friends and no flowers. i think he and his sister made all this up and just threw everything away in a skip including their mother.

    the persona of Clarkson is a monstrous twat- but I am sure the man is perfectly pleasant (and very reasonable- it peeks through occasionally). Losing a parent is tough, and this strikes me as being a good way of deflecting the attention as well as paying tribute to his Mother...

    @Capt Kangaroo: a dumpster, but more like one of those long ones that go on the back of a flatbed.

    Love Clarkson. Like that old uncle who constantly has a glass of bourbon.

    Terrible to hear of his mother`s passing. Saw her on one of his documentaries about his lineage. He was all happy because he figured he was the descendent of some English jar makers lol. His mum was there leading him on the wild goose chase.

    @rob: Everything I ever saw, he loved his mother like a 5 year old does.

    @Durdik: You`re a twat. Clarkson uses his articles like a journal. He has since the 80`s. This probably helped him cope.

    @Madduck: Hear hear.

    @auburnjunky all a ruse he had planned since the very day he was born. i wouldnt be surprised if he gave his mother the cancer. clearly this man is some kind of monster who has plotted a diabolical scheme with his evil sister to slowly murder their mother and throw away all her old ugly possessions in some weird yellow british dumpster (i thought it was a boat, where the hell does the term skipper come from?). you say of everything you saw he loved his mother, but you didnt see when the camera was turned off. as soon as the camera was turned off, he chained his mother back up in a small dog cage.

    the persona of Clarkson is a monstrous twat- but I am sure the man is perfectly pleasant (and very reasonable- it peeks through occasionally).

    Someone I know worked for Top Gear for a day - apparently they often hire people locally when filming. There`s a lot of stuff to be done off-camera. So he saw the presenters off camera for hours. Clarkson was different (and much more pleasant) off camera - he`s playing a role because it`s part of his job. The friendship and messing about between the presenters is real though - they do it off camera too.

    It`s strange that anyone takes anything his persona says seriously, particularly after he`s repeatedly said that nobody should.

    where the hell does the term skipper come from?

    The immediate etymology is from the Old English word for a boat. Cognates in other Germanic languages indicate that the origin is much older.

    As for this kind of skip...I don`t know. Maybe it`s because it`s sort of boat-shaped.

    The skips in the photos in this thread are over-filled, by the way. You`d be charged extra for that (and the second one might be refused as well - that`s way over).

    Well, I am working on this sorting out and throwing out (giving away, selling, whatever) thing, because I don`t want our children to have to deal with it. I am only 55, and my old fart is 62, but you never know... My mom died, and Dad had trouble finding paperwork he needed, and his house was a mess, full of stuff he wouldn`t use. Also, as your children leave home and you grow older, you should realize that you don`t need 3/4 of the crap you have spent 30 years accumulating.
