One of the great mysteries of life, aside from “why do men have nipples”, is, “where do Stigs come from?” You may think they’re biologically engineered and grown in rather large test tubes, or perhaps hatched from Stig eggs in an incubator. Fortunately, the above video doesn’t show the Stig mating or birthing process, but it does give us a look behind the scenes at TopGear’s secret Stig farm, where every couple of years breeding and careful selection produces a champion.
Jeremy Clarkson tries to blend humor with his venom, but can’t quite pull it off. Lines like “Many Stigs turn out to be treacherous”, followed by, “hysterically, some Stigs think they can write books” clearly show that Clarkson is still holding on to quite a bit of resentment. Okay, Jeremy, we get it: you’re angry at Ben Collins and you feel that he betrayed your friendship. He sold out TopGear, along with queen and country; chances are he even drinks coffee instead of tea, and favors his meat cooked some way other than boiled. Its time to move on now and put the whole Ben-Collins-was-the-Stig thing behind us. The Stig is dead; long live the Stig!
