Not Even Trolling

Andrew Klavan doesn't think freaking out ordinary people is funny:
But there’s something about the talented, creative and undoubtedly funny [Sacha Baron] Cohen’s whole modus operandi that just really bugs me.
Fine. The rest of the article's a sort of anti-Candid Camera complaint and bleg for Obama jokes. The real gold is at comment six:

Do tell.

Can anyone think of any other country where Cohen could pull this crap with everyday people and not get his butt kicked inside of five minutes?

The review of Borat in O Globo had a line I liked so much, I printed it out and stuck it on my fridge: "No matter how ignorant you may be, there will always be an American who will surpass you."

Conversely, Baron-Cohen has never stooped to shouting abuse at anti-landmine street marches for laughs.

Oh, that's just silly.

A friend and I once made blender drinks in the elevator to the observation deck in the transamerica pyramid.

It was REALLY funny...
