More craziness with ire today as we bid farewell to the flame duplicate and reveal Paste Pot Pete's true skill.
Johnny's caught up with Paste Pot Pete's truck after he's arrived at an army base and used paste - the supreme weapon - to hijack a missile. Once it's been launched. As the panel show, Johnny dissolves his duplicate, turning it into flaming spears that he hurls at Pete's truck's wheels.
A complete waste of time, frankly, as Paste Pot Pete's driving skills with a laden, top-heavy truck would put the Stig to shame, He effortlessly turns on a sixpence (dime for you lovely Americans) and avoids every single spear. With skills like that, surely he could have made a decent living as a stunt driver rather than devoting his life to trying to convince the world that paste is the supreme weapon.
