ALMATY (Reuters) - A British comedian who uses a boorish, sexist and racist Kazakh alter ego called Borat to poke fun at interviewees has responded to a legal threat from the Kazakh authorities by satirically welcoming the move.
Responding in character as Borat, Cohen, who is Jewish, said: "I like to state, I have no connection with Mr Cohen and fully support my government's position to sue this Jew."
"Since 2003 ... Kazakhstan is as civilized as any other country in the world," he said on his website, www.borat.kz.
"Women can now travel on inside of bus, homosexuals no longer have to wear blue hat and age of consent has been raised to eight years old."
That's one hell of a response. That's almost as funny as R. Kelly saying that he was innocent or Michael Jackson comparing himself to Nelson Mandela.
As much as I enjoy Sacha Baron Cohen's work, I feel bad for Kazakhstan. I'm not saddened by Borat's hilarious misrepresentation. I'm upset that the Communist bad asses of my youth are now cowards. The communist monsters from the Rocky film and NES video games would have sent a sexy female assassin to slice Ali G's neck. They never would have to threaten to sue. This litigious act is proof of the pussification of the world. The world is turning into one big sweaty vagina and nobody has a dick big enough to fuck it.
