More Borat Headlines...
According to E Online, Borat just keeps making the tabloids. Fond of pushing the envelope with his boorish Borat character, Sacha Baron Cohen found himself on the wrong end of a couple of punch lines in NYC recently, according to the National Enquirer. Heading out for a drink with Hugh Laurie after the pair's recent SNL appearance, Cohen stayed in Borat mode to goof on a passerby as Laurie stepped into a Greenwich Village pub. The comedian reportedly told the guy on the street, "I like your clothings. Are nice! Please, may I buying? I want to have sex with it...your clothings...very much." Whereupon, the dude smacked Cohen upside the head—and then gave him another whack for good measure! That's when Laurie leaped to the rescue, rushing out of the bar and pulling Cohen to safety. Rough crowd, New Yorkers. In Manhattan, it pays to walk softly, especially if you carry a big schtick.
