Clunk click, eh?

Piers Morgan was unveiled as the new host of one of American's biggest talk shows last night. The Britain's Got Talent judge replaces Larry King Live on CNN from January.

Larry King will also be moving on to pastures new, by taking up the highly buffed helmet of "The Stig" on America's version of England's most popular television show "Top Gear", most popular after X-Factor, that is.

King, 76, announced earlier this summer that he was stepping down from his world-famous show, which he began hosting in 1985, and is looking forward to getting behind the wheel of some of the worlds top cars, as well as some old bone-shakers.

He let slip one or two of the cars that he has already driven in test filming for the new series and has given us a sneak peek glimpse of what's coming up.

First of all there is the wheelie bin car that has an upright layout and runs on cat urine, a greener alternative, I think you will agree. There is also the Kanye West mobile, but that is still in the testing phase as it keeps jumping through intersections when it isn't its turn to go.

He will also be putting new types of combustibles to the test like Rooney fuel, a new type of petrol for older cars, that isn't so good on the younger models but really gets going when you put it inside an old banger.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
