      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

I wouldn't say that Sasha Cohen is America's Bitch. Dude is funny as fuck, and crossed-over to a different demographic. Thats like saying Dave Chappelle is England's Bitch because people like him there. Blame HBO and Comedy Central, not the comedians trying to make a living. Borat and "The Jew Claw"...... Timeless..... :huh:

i think that kinda the point is that he is a steriotypical middle eastern and i think the humor is supposed to be more in the way an average american reacts to the situation

i thought he was british?

the humor is definitely in the reactions. have you seen the clip on youtube where he's at some hunting range down south? some of the stuff those hicks say is ridiculous! i can see how it would be offensive it the material related to your background. i'm still gonna see the movie though.

hes actually being Central Asian.... Kazakhstan is the only country in the area that produces enough food to feed its citizens. Their government is corrupt as hell though. I don't really get how it hits too close to home if your girl is Russian, Russian's usually look down on Kazakhs a bit. They have too much of that Mongoloid in them. Too much sheep herding. Ummm, I really like this area of the world thoiugh, everything you can read about it is very fascinating. Russian Imperialism/Western Imperialism has left it completely fucked though. ramble ramble ramble

i secoond that. instead of saying he is from kazahkstan you could fill in any other country. It's all about what the americans think of this region, and how stupid some of them are.

id say 97% of british people have no idea who dave chappelle is,he has never been on tv over here ive only ever saw him on youtube

both the borat and ali g characters were funnier when he did his shows here,some of the american ones are ok but i think the guy has run out of ideas or his characters just becom a cliche of themselves

oh ok. thats different. Actually, the only person I've ever met from Kazakhstan was a beautiful Russian girl that was an exchange student at my high school. She wanted the USSR back because her family was better off during communism. She did seem rich though so you know what that means, there are only a couple of ways to get money in this area and its usually not from being nice. :o

Anyways, do you guys know anything about Turkmenistan or Turkmenbashi?

i want to see that Will Ferell movie where that lady is an author and writing a book, and whatever she writes, it happens to him and neither knows what's going on. This movie will be full of hi jinx.

Now that I've seen the Stranger than Fiction trailer, it looks like as big a piece of shit as Borat, if that's possible.

borat's dope... even if you don't like the character borat you couldn't hate on all the sarcasm and satire in this movie... for example this scene with those college-students who don't even know the difference between russia and kazakhstan, askin borat (borat seems to be a very complicated name so they call him "boris" ) if there are have sex-slaves who are forced to fuck in russia and shit like that... that's just hilarious...

its not really about sarcasm(cos sarcasm tends to be shit unless its done correctly) borats about making dumb people look even more dumber

on a related note i saw on yahoo news a worker got sacked after borat duped her i dunno the details il dig it up

here we go

TV news producer Dharma Arthur, 50, claims Cohen’s antics during a visit to her studio caused her to spiral into depression.

In the film, out today, Borat visits a live noon news show on a local TV station in Mississippi. While on the air, the Kazakh news correspondent, wreaks havoc with the anchor and weatherman.

He makes sexual and obscene references and stands up during the interview so that he’s out of frame. The segment is cut short, after which Borat wanders into the live weather report.

Ms Arthur who unwittingly booked Borat, recently wrote to Newsweek calling herself one of Cohen’s many “victims”.

“Because of him, my boss lost faith in my abilities and second-guessed everything I did thereafter,” she said.

“I spiralled into depression, and before I could recover, I was released from my contract early. It took me three months to find another job, and now I'm thousands of dollars in debt and struggling to keep my house out of foreclosure.

“Think of all the other people who've probably been fired because of his antics.”

There have been no other reports of people losing their jobs over Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, which opened nationwide this week.

i saw him on the daily show last night, and either thats cohen as a person or he really stays in character, cause he was pulling some shit too. with jew jokes and being ignorant.

and that commercial for the new farrell movie was on, it kinda reminds me of i heart huckabees, with the life sorting thing going on.
