Yep, we got the irony in the name, too. Richard Hammond has announced that he’s starting a new solo show with the Discovery Channel called Richard Hammond’s Big. This is as well as The Grand Tour, which will be returning, please don’t fear! Oh, and if you’re in America, it will be on Science Channel US!

The show will let Hammond take you on an adventure with some of the biggest feats of engineering in the world. As he stated in the video above, this includes the longest underground railway, and a cargo ship the size of four football pitches.
He was quick to realise the irony, however. And from this new show, a joke began.
Here are some of the best we can find!
The same irony as Richard Hammond’s Crash Course.????

Looking forward to seeing you have an accident in bigger and bigger vehicles. Maybe a US aircraft carrier? You could just blame it on the Navy personnel. Everyone does.

And our very favourite…
Right we’ve got Hammond with ‘Big’, now we need Clarkson with ‘Small’ and May with ‘Exciting’
