This may be better suited to the debate forum, but I think it's funny when Top Gear makes those jabs. As an American, I don't feel offended, because I know so many who do fit the stupid, fat American stereotype.
Like my sister's boyfriend. He's not fat, but he's willfully ignorant. He doesn't know some of the major US state capitals, let alone anything about the world. He would eat steak and drink Bud every day if he could, and drives an F150 which he has no need for and doesn't use as intended (he lives in an apartment). Totally homophobic and insecure in his masculinity. Yet he has no problem cheering for men in tight purple spandex (the Vikings).
By the way, he's an inspector on the new Boeing 787s. Pray for those poor Japanese who will be that aircraft's launch customer!
