Kazakhstan Threatens to Sue Comedian

Heh.

Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays the spoof Kazakh television reporter in his "Da Ali G Show," incurred the wrath of Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry this month after appearing as Borat at the annual MTV Europe Music Awards.

Did anybody else's eyes lock right onto the name 'Cohen' and say to themselves, "Ohhhh. Right."
No?
Just me?

Responding in character as Borat, Cohen, who is Jewish, said: "I like to state, I have no connection with Mr Cohen and fully support my government's position to sue this Jew."

If Kazakhstan goes for it, this guy's career will be catapulted to great new heights.
