    Kazakhstan threatens "Borat" with court

    Mon Nov 14, 9:13 AM ET

    Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry threatened legal action on Monday against comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who wins laughs by portraying the central Asian state as a country populated by drunks who enjoy cow-punching as a sport.

    Baron Cohen, who portrays a spoof Kazakh television presenter Borat in his "Da Ali G Show", has won fame ridiculing Kazakhstan, the world's ninth largest country yet still little known to many in the West.

    Baron Cohen appears to have drawn official Kazakh ire after he hosted the annual MTV Europe Music Awards show in Lisbon earlier this month as Borat, who arrived in an Air Kazakh propeller plane controlled by a one-eyed pilot clutching a vodka bottle.

    "We do not rule out that Mr. Cohen is serving someone's political order designed to present Kazakhstan and its people in a derogatory way," Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman Yerzhan Ashykbayev told a news briefing.

    "We reserve the right to any legal action to prevent new pranks of the kind." He declined to elaborate.

    Cohen's earlier jokes about the Central Asian state include claims that the people would shoot a dog and then have a party, and that local wine was made from fermented horse urine.

    "We view Mr. Cohen's behaviour at the MTV Europe Music Awards as utterly unacceptable, being a concoction of bad taste and ill manners which is completely incompatible with ethics and civilised behaviour," Ashykbayev said.

    I fucking love that the Kazakhstan government has convinced itself that Borat is part of a larger conspiracy against the country.

    I watched him on the MTV Europe Awards or some shit. He was hilarious, except nobody was laughing at his jokes.

    I love Borat.

    borat is the only ali g character I like (I know ali g is s character too)...

    I think only well-educated/ well-read Americans with an ironic sense of humor find him funny though...

    Borat kinda reminds me of Tony Shaloub's muslim character in Quick Change though...

    borat is the best comedic character of all time.
     
  8. Dude sucked as the host on the MTV awards.
    His Borat character was semi-funny about a decade ago.
