Real-Life Borats


We're not usually ones to recommend a trip to the Plain Dealer's website -- it's like trying to navigate Uzbekistan with a 1973 map of Pennsylvania -- but Sabrina Eaton scored a great story about a bunch of real-life Kazakhstan filmmakers trying to make a documentary in Ohio. Because everyone is talking about Borat, nobody believes these dudes are for real. Hillarity ensues. It's so good, we're surprised Sacha Baron Cohen didn't think of it himself. Best part: One of the dude's names is "Bolat." Niiiiiiice. -- Kevin Hoffman
