Last weekend I had the pleasure of seeing the Borat movie film. I don't think I have anything unique to add to the mounting praise and criticisms; let me just say that, hilarity aside, the move offers a wide variety of offensive material, from bizarre sexist remarks to gratuitous nudity.
Given that Sacha Baron Cohen, the actor portraying Borat, is not a native to Kazakhstan, I understood that most of Borat's ramblings were based on humor rather than fact. At one point, Borat sings the fictional Kazakhstan anthem, 'O Kazakhstan', citing KazakhstanÂs superior export of potassium.
I thought it was a bunch of horse shit. Turns out, I was right.
