Slovakian Lorry Driver Sheds Skin On M4 - Olympic Lane Traffic Chaos Ensues

Very Day Today
This headline was actually used on TDT, without the lorry driver's nationality and the reference to Olympic Lanes. I call plagiarism.
Wow, was it? I have never seen the show you are talking about and no plagiarism was intended, the original headline I was thinking of was Afghan Lorry Driver Sheds Hair (Afghan Hound) - the M4 obviously because it is on the Olympic route.
I choose skin and Slovakian based on last years story about the Slovakian guy who got that full body snake tatoo...hence shedding his skin.
Plagiarism it certainly is not but if someone else has thought of "Shedding Skin" as oppossed to "Shedding load" then I apologise.
It's a little before my time actually as I am 25 (I must have been 9 or 8 when this show was on telly!) and this seems to be a show I missed, unless it was on BBC1 before 6'oclock, great find though and it looks pretty funny!
Didn't see the Skin Shedding sketch or whatever it was though on the link, I may download some episodes though, looks a bit dated compared to some of the more recent shows on the box.
Still funny though, not sure I like the format and I don't recognise any of the cast, I remember someone once told me to watch a show called Not The Nine O'Clock News once and I did and to me that was very old indeed and though funny it was too old fashioned, a bit like this show.
Thanks for the link and introducing me to show though.
Sorry if I seemed a bit harsh, HIGNFY. It's just one of those headlines that sticks in your head. I believe the original was, "Parts of the M6 are closed tonight due to a lorry driver having shed his skin across three lanes."
The Day Today has to be one of the best shows ever. Brass Eye was great too, but TDT is a little less mean-spirited.
Some classic headlines from TDT:
Headmaster suspended for using big-faced child as satellite dish
Where now for man raised by puffins?
This the news, God I wish it wasn't
TWAT! That was liquid football...
Child made of paint wins by-election
Disgustingly old woman sniffed to death by puppies
