Steve - Well, I don't know "Last of the Summer Wine" but if it's like  
"Top Gear" with wine tastings, I get your point.  The pleasure I get  
from the program may have something to do with having a minor interest  
in cars, but to me it's mostly vicarious pleasure in watching three  
guys having alot of fun with toys I'll certainly never get my hands on.

Clarkson uses a particular kind of academic locution I've heard quite  
a bit of around M.I.T and Harvard, so it's not strange to me.  I'll  
bet he's spent a lot of time in Oxford or Cambridge, UK.
