Anyone who has been watching Top Gear recently will know that The Stig has developed a fondness of the dulcet tones of Morse code while he drives. Because by Sunday evening we have wound down to an appropriate level that befits staring at fast cars and listening to Jeremy Clarkson we don't normally think about what those beeps actually mean.

The boys over at Jalopnik are far more on the ball however and have enlisted one of America’s leading experts on Morse code to, er, de-code the code. While the Stig tortured the new Lexus IS-F around the Top Gear track we heard two bursts of circles and lines - but what do they mean? Apparently this:

Morse code number 1: ‘Too many gears’. No doubt a reference to what Clarkson had said earlier in the show.

Morse code number 2: ‘I like Mr Sulu.’ A fan of I’m a Celebrity Get me out of Here perhaps?

Why did they need an "expert"? I could have done it for them.

P.S. It is Morse not Morse code because it is not a code, more a second language.
