Why, Austria, Why Do You Not Love The Bruno?


The Austrian ambassador to Britain, Emil Brix, is calling for a boycott of Bruno … because of how Sacha Baron Cohen depicts nationals. Yeah?

Joking about Austria’s ties to Hitler and being home to incest dungeon aficionado Josef Fritzl just doesn’t sit well with this diplomat. And here we thought axing the offensive post-homoerotic cage match scene would be enough to appease critics.

      …………..but Australia LOVES Bruno (not to be confused with the European country still in the shadow of Germany!)

      Two dildos is better than one!

      Good pastries, good skiing, nice museum, Mozart…Kurt Waldheim, Schwarzenegger. Strike the last two. What good has Austria done lately?

      Lighten up, Herr Brix.

      Hmm, Is Austria still here? They’ve been so quiet for 40 years we thought they’d left the party to be home in time for curfew.

      Nobody likes Sacha Baron Cohen because he is not funny. He offends people. He takes stereotypes, forces and enforces them. Like some kind of one man anti-peace machine. Wait until he makes a movie about Americans. Then he will be banned here too.

      For an Austrian diplomat to be sensitive to a satirist pointing to its ties to HItler is just plain tacky. You gave birth to him, you cheered him. Suck it!

      You’re an idiot, the whole point of Borat was to make fun of Americans.

      So sorry. I couldn’t stomach the first five minutes of unfunny stupidity and I turned it off.
