I suspect it probably can, but I suppose it's possible that whoever's responsible for those books is also a Top Gear fan. I got the "punch... in the middle of its face" construction from Clarkson (as "killed to death" comes from May). Indeed, for my purposes "in the middle of its face" is really the critical part of the whole thing. :)
