Frat Boys Sue Borat for Being an Asshole. Kettle, thy Name is Black

I read this with some amusement. Some frat boys get conned into acting like their typical Saturday night selves in front of a camera and now they are mad because it was used in a scene in the biggest movie in the country. They claim "humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress, loss of reputation, goodwill and standing in the community...".

OMG, SOMEONE GOT THOSE POOR FRAT BOYS DRUNK AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THEM!!! Give me a freaking break here.

They actually got $200 for it, which is $200 dollars more than those girls on the Girls Gone Wild videos that are plastered all over late night TV (minus the t-shirt).

I know I can't be the only one who sees the irony here. I haven't seen the movie yet but I hope to, and when I do, I'm gonna take particular glee in the scene where the drunk frat guys wish they had their own slaves and "the minorities got all the power."

What a couple of dumbass fuckwads. Future Republican leaders in the making I am sure.

I suspect you'll have even less sympathy for these guys once you see the movie. It's not only that they're behaving like drunk frat boys rambling incoherently about how they wish they had slaves. The more frightening moment is when they're not all that drunk and reveal themselves as truly creepy misogynists. Sacha Baron Cohen doesn't even have to do much of anything as Borat to elicit this behavior, either. Watching these guys talk about how little they think of women and how much they use them, I had flashbacks to my dorm days spent rescuing friends of mine from date rapists and escorting them home from late night parties.

So, naturally, I too take an especial glee in seeing frat boys claim they were manipulated into doing things they didn't want to do while drunk. It's verah niiice! I like!

Welcome, my first poster! I've had a few postings on my other blog, (strictly political satire under another identity), but I half-heartedly promote it. This one's just for kicks and giggles and saying what I can't say satirically. I am amazed that totally random strangers do actually read this sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by Adam. I can't wait to see the film, I almost busted a gut laughing at the 30 minute promotion that they had on comedy central last night.
