If it is normal for them to make fun and no one group thenI don't see the big deal.

Top Gear is merely a representation of the British humour, we mock other nations as much as we mock our own- they ripped into Aussies as well on that episode (by transporting the Top Gear Australia presenters in a Prison Van rather than a taxi- bringing them to the track the same way their ancestors left the country, as clarkson put it) and constantly put down America and Germany.

1: I would bet anything that only the ambassador was offended, and that nobody else gave a shit
2: you just know top gear is gonna rip this to shreds

It didn't take them long did it. They should expect that sort of thing if they watch Top Gear.
Some people are just too anal for their own good.

The australians looked a little miffed to start with methinks but they soon loosened up.

Upside down cars.... XD Genius!

The mexican-bashing wasn't outside the stereotyping that they did the aussies in the same episode. No big deal really.

Don't give me rep, just poke My Bum ... and then give me rep.

Did the Mexican's take some time out from slaughtering each other in large numbers over drugs.. to be offended?
