I have a copy of Ali G that I have not yet played. If it's anything  
like "Ali G, Aiii", I suspect the concept will run out of steam after  
a while... there's only so much pointing a camera at people who are  
desperate to make fools of themselves while the interviewer pretends  
to be deadly serious can take you. The Borat segments were fun, as  
was Ali G, but eventually you say, "Okay, we get it. These people  
don't know just how much rope they're being given while Cohen  
pretends to be as dorky as they really are..."

I was thrilled to hear of the two anonymous college fraternity  
members who are suing the producers of "Borat" for millions of  
dollars for plying them with alcohol, making them look like fools,  
and doing irreparable damage to their good names and reputations...  
yeah, like they needed any help.

I've come to two conclusions: the 1934 Hal Roach "Babes in Toyland"  
with Laurel and Hardy is on way too early in the day, and sometimes I  
mildly regret not being a drug abuser...
