- I don't remember how I got to this page, but teeheehee I just had to link it :-) I had lots of LOLs, and the last [#1] skit was soooo painful to watch and yet I had to keep watching... like a trainwreck... which is how I would describe just about every Borat skit I've seen anyway. Yes, click here for Cracked's 10 Best Borat Skits of All-Time.
Now, when the hype for Borat was starting to be heard about a month ago, I caught sight of the character and wondered why it/he was so familar. Took me a while to realise/accept that this was the person I knew as Ali G! Not that I liked that character either - he uses a brand of humor that's not quite up my alley. But his interview with Posh & Becks for Comic Relief was classic - "so do you want little Brooklyn to grow up and be a footballer like his dad, or a singer like Mariah Carey?" LMAO! The little bit about sarong/ so wrong is what has stayed in my mind for the longest time. Thanx to YouTube I managed to refresh my memory. It's a 10 min thing, and the audio doesn't quite match the video, but stick with it ... the sarong thing is right at the end, at about 9:30 or so. Check it out here.
Once more thing: I don't know if it's intentional or just coincidental, but I vaguely remember that people in the Northern area of Malaysia [Perlis / Kedah] use a term sounding suspiciously like "bo'rat" as a colloquial for, err, harrrmmph. Any orang utara who can confirm/deny?

And since I was reminded of random British comedy... here's a Star Wars Episode One spoof by French & Saunders. Watch out for random teletubbies roaming around the marketplace. You'll cheer at Gui-Gon Jinn telling "Jar-Jar" to "piss off! piss off!" Again, the ending is the best "before you go, master, answer me this one last big question... do I grow up to become Alec Guiness?"
UPDATE Tuesday 1050am; here's another F&S SW:I 2min clip: watch for the changing Padme makeup! L.M.A.O.!

And this is related in the way that they all indicate the weird things that tweak my fancy... compare the following verses:
- we like sweets a lot
but they make our insides rot
so remember it's your body
and the only one you've got
we like sweets a lot
so give us all you got
and we'll stuff 'em in our bodies
till they make our insides rot
That's quite a bit of difference, eh?
Recognize the lyrics? It's the end of the Animaniacs song Be Careful What You Eat where Wakko, Yakko and Dot sing out the ingredients that make up candy bars and ice cream [pistachio almond fruit fudge butterscotch delight], yummy yum!
Now, I've had the Animaniacs audio CD for over ten years, and the CD has had loads of playtime over the years [having a 10-disc player in the car is one of the best ways to forgot you're stuck in a friggin traffic jam in KL, lemmie tell ya!], so while I may still stumble over the lyrics that are sang way too fast, I certainly know how the songs sound. And Be Careful What You Eat is one of my faves [heehehe I couldn't tell you right now which is NOT my fave, they are all nice and zany LOL!]
So it was a bit jarring for me to hear the alternate ending on the DVD [Vol 1].
I wonder if they re-recorded and re-worded the song to be more "responsible" on the CD?
I'm used to the responsible version, but the "original" is definitely more in line with the attitude that is Wakko, Yakko & Dot, don't ya think?

A self-update: The self-sabotage is going extremely well! Never have I so craved cookies as I have in this past week [damn you, Golden Oreos!], and I seem hard-pressed to drink even a bottle of water a day! So of course, the 5 or 6 small meals a day plan has been totally out the window for quite a while now. Grrrr! I've still managed to hit the gym about 4x a week, which is probably the only good thing for the moment.
Nvm, tomorrow is a brand new day.
No, wait, TODAY! It *is* past midnight, after all!
And I'm still nursing my caffeine-laden Coke Zero.
Gee, I wonder when I'm actually gonna sleep? Of course, actually getting to bed might help :p
