Borat = Mahir

Remember Mahir, with the unintentionally comic website - 'I kiss you!' etc. He reckons that Sacha Baron Cohen has ripped him off. He might have a point.

I am Jonny the Monkey, #1 celebrity in all Kazakhstan (Borat is #4). I want write you to say Borat NOT rip off Mahir! And Electronics News Networks write article that prove Borat innocent...


If after read article anyone STILL say Borat a thief... I throws poop at them fresh from anoos! :)


Note: the above response by Jonny the Monkey was "hand signed" by Jonny to his gypsy assistant Batyr who then translated & transcribed it into this comment form.

what on earth is going on? have we been virally marketed or something?

Er, not entirely sure. Think this Borat stuff might be getting out of hand. I'm going to go back to moaning about Iraq and climate change.

When someone showed me the Borat website, the first thing I thought of was Mahir, so glad that someone else made the link. Anyway, all I can think of is the US elections. The Republicans have suddenly come back in the polls, and I'm bracing myself for a hideous re-run of 2004.

Borat got a seriously good review in the Telegraph. It sounds quite wince-inducing though (I have serious trouble sitting through The Office and comedy of that ilk).
