The resurgence of British humor

The rude and crude British humor is coming back. I was never a big fan of Monty Python, but I enjoyed Fawlty Towers. But this time around, Ricky Gervais and Sacha Baron Cohen are comic geniuses.

Borat is my favorite character. Look for some of his sound clips here. Visit the Unofficial Borat Homepage for more laughs.

It takes an ingenious comic to come up with silly questions like "What's barely legal?" and "Would you ever nuke Canada? There's the element of surprise."

When asking astronaut Buzz Aldrin (erroneously referring him to Buzz Lightyear) "Do you think us humans will ever walk on the sun?" Buzz replies patiently, "No, because the sun is too hot." Ali G then asks, "What 'bout in winter?"

Asking a DEA why some drugs are outlawed but not others, Ali G inquires, "Why not outlaw Pringles cuz they say 'Once you pop you can't stop?'"

Also after introducing Boutros Boutros Boutros Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Ali G asks "Is French the funniest language?" and the former UN Secretary General answers, "Arabic might be funnier."

The list goes on...the important thing was Ali G was the commencement speaker for Harvard undergrad this past June. Now you know how influential this guy is! Check it.
