Curious to know why this Voorhies Avenue resident decided to hang the photo cutout of Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat, Sheepshead Bites went a knocking. But, no one answered the doorbell at the House to Encourage Borat Fanship in Sheepshead Bay.
They were probably onto our cover. Figuring that they don’t want to get caught up in the type of candid recording that Baron Cohen is famous for, they might have decided to just stay indoors. There was a vehicle parked in the driveway, though.
Since his last movie, the comedian has transformed himself into Bruno and is now making people laugh (or puke, depending on your perspective) as a strange, but ‘innocent’ gay fashion designer turned media glut.
If you like Sacha’s brand of deep intellectualism, as this local resident seems to, you might want to check out his latest movie at the UA Sheepshead Bay 14 Theater. Or if you’re more about the “theory of mind” ultra-intellectualism not available on the big screen, you might prefer to check out his cousin’s books from the library. Yes, Sacha Baron Cohen is related to none other than Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology.
So, it’s up to you how you choose to spend your Friday evening, just so long as you’re staying in tune with Sheepshead Bites! As for me, I’ll be cracking open my old copy of the 1997 hit, The maladapted mind: essays in evolutionary psychopathology. Maybe, I can get some insight into what makes Sacha tick like a time bomb waiting to explode.
