Based on Nathan Schrenk's suggestion, I had the TiVo snatch an episode of "Da Ali G Show" off HBO. It's a somewhat-serious talk show featuring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen playing the show's white gangsta-wannabe host. I say "somewhat" serious, as the interview subjects are real people (Ralph Nader, Brent Scowcroft, etcetera,) but the questions aren't. (Ali asks a Catholic priest if he'd marry a Jewish woman if she were "really fit".) The interview subjects are polite, but obviously bemused by what's going on.

People pretending to be something they obviously aren't just doesn't grab me. It's a neat concept, but I can't get into it. Except for one thing:

"I am Boutros Boutros-Ghali! Put down your gun and listen to Bob Marley!"

That cracked my ass up...
