Real Men of Genius

Sasha Baron Cohen is at it again.

Cohen is filming another movie, this one featuring "Bruno," his gay Austrian journalist character. Just a few days ago, Cohen duped a former Mossad agent into doing an on-camera interview, which you can read about here.

Even better is what happened last month in Arkansas:
Lured by $1 beer and the prospect of "hot chicks" and "hardcore fights," thousands of Arkansans were duped last month into appearing as extras in comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's latest staged mayhem. Cohen and his confederates organized cage fighting programs on consecutive days in Texarkana and Fort Smith. Both cards ended with two male grapplers (one was identified as "Straight Dave" and wore camouflage) tearing each other's clothes off and, while in underwear, kissing down their opponent's chest. This man-on-man action triggered Fort Smith fans to throw chairs and beer at the ring, according to one cop present at the city's Convention Center.

That is so outrageously brilliant that I have nothing else to say.
