I saw that Borat movie today.

I liked it very much.

Mr. Cohen should have been arrested or killed at some point during the filming of that movie. He appears to be divinely protected.

It was a cognitively jarring experience. I never really knew what was happening. (Aside, obviously, from the stated plot.)

Weeks ago, I loved reading all those articles in the papers that proposed to divine for the reader's illumination just what Mr. Cohen was up to.

Yes, he will employ irony. But don't forget that he may reserve the right to plainly state a sentiment. And you won't know which is which without closer inspection.

The comedian is forcing you to examine each statement --that is, each proffered reality.
