Borat in 2008


"If there is one more item of Uzbek propaganda claiming that we do not drink fermented horse urine, give death penalty for baking bagels, or export over 300 tons of human pubis per year, then we will be left with no alternative but to commence bombardment of their cities with our catapults."

I'm not even going to attempt to improve on this comediacally in any way; it would be like challenging Michael Jordan to a pick-up game. Besides -- I'm far too busy laughing my ass off.

God bless Sacha Baron Cohen for creating Borat.

God bless Borat for prompting the government of Kazakhstan to take out a four-page ad in the New York Times in an effort to refute a fucking joke.

God bless our idiot president for providing the ultimate punchline by reportedly planning to debate this "controversy" with Kazakhstan's president during their meeting today.

Dzienkuje.

So I'm eating my turkey sandwich at lunch today while watching CNN Headline News and what commercial comes on? You guessed it...a tourism ad for Kazakhstan. They showed a bunch of scenary that I would equate to what looked like Vermont with some Middle East Architecture mixed in.

Can you guess what the Slogan at the end was?

"Ever Wander...?"

My dog almost got a nice treat of half eaten sandwich that I nearly spit out laughing.

This must be more of the creeping surrealism you were talking about. Maybe if I can come up with someone that clever, the president can apologize for my rude behavior as well. "I'm sorry that Miss Bailey shit in your fountain and punched all of your old ladies, but it's what was best for America. Heh, heh, heh."
