Sacha Baran Cohen in 1998 - a year before Mahir really came onto the scene.

That guy has a dangerously large shnozz.

And Borat always seemed more like a Turk to me anyway. Kazakhs don't really look like him.

I respect your opinion for not liking Borat. Even though I think you're loopy.

There are many Russians still in Kazakhstan. There is nothing unusual about Borat being from Kazakhstan to the "naked eye."

Yeah, I barely even giggled at this movie. Knowing that the material's not even original makes it even worse.

But Borat isn't a Russian in Kazakhstan. He's a Kazakh.

I think Borat is hilarious, but it has always kind of bugged me that his schtick is being Kazakh. He looks and talks nothing like a Kazakh. He's always struck me as doing a Turk caricature.

There are ethnic Russians who would call themselves Kazakh, I know some personally.

Yeah, but I've never seen any of them that look anything like Borat. He looks like a Turk.

Lots of material isnt original. It always comes from somewhere else.
