you might think that i'm too serious or too touchy but i can assure you that's not the case. then again, if the type of humour that appeals you and other westerners or even western-wannabes is the type in which a guy makes fun of small communities and peoples, then by all means do laugh. i rather watch something else. thank you.

his jokes are neither funny or clever. i remember when i watched borat i was just disgusted by him. he's just a asshole deriding others and selling tickets because of it.
Never thought I'd see the day!

Abraxas, you and I actually agree on something!

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

Cohen is harmless when taking for what he is worth. I mean, he's a fucking comedian, man

What is infinitely more dangerous is those who take what he is saying seriously.

It is like those who take MTF or Stephen Colbert seriously. It is unhealthy to take it seriously. Just laugh at it.

Now now let's not generalise.

Not everybody likes to laugh.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

"Borat" was so-so. Haven't seen any of the other movies. I found the first season of the Ali G show (which he made for Channel 4) to be quite refreshing, funny and clever. He exposed cultural stereotypes in a delightful (and rather inoffensive) way. I never watched the later American shows. Maybe he raunched up (or dumbed down) his act before crossing the pond for added shock value. But the original UK shows were extremely entertaining at times. His comedy shtick really worked in that setting.

This seems to be a common misconception, but I believe I know how to clear it up:

Comedians are funny.

Everyone has different tastes. Clearly Mr. Cohen is doing quite well for himself financially on the back of his movies and TV shows, etc.

Ergo, he is a comedian. Just because you don't find him funny doesn't mean that he is not a comedian, it simply means you won't be paying $10 to go see his new movie.

Adam Sandler also did quite well for himself.

What's your point?

Anger Management had some hilarious moments. Though on the second thought, most of those were because of Jack Nicholson, and he's not even a comedian, hmmm...

I think Sacha's strongest points are when he does satire, much less so when he does comedy

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Waterboy and Little Nicky cannot be shown to POWs because it would violate the Geneva Convention.

Just sayin.

Ah, those two I guess Waterboy could earn a pass with ages 8 and under, while Little Nicky had to go straight to the nearest dumpster.
