... apparently means "not funny" in the Kazakh language.

In case my post has been misunderstood, I have no idea whether "Borat" means anything in Kazakh or any other language.

I just meant to say that I haven't seen a less-funny "comedy" since Napoleon Dynamite.  I enjoyed Da Ali G Show mostly for the title character, and "Bruno" was usually good for a laugh too ... Borat was my least-favorite feature of the show.  I should have remembered that before trying to watch Cultural Learnings in America.

Last Sunday a few folks at the South By Southwest Film Festival got to see 22 minutes of the Bruno film.  I think it will be out this summer.
