n his latest stunt to promote his sure-to-be-controversial July 10 comedy Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen appeared dressed as a bull at the historic Las Ventas bullfighting ring in Madrid, according to the Associated Press. "Ich have come to redress the wrong done to the gay community by that Hollywood movie on Harvey Milk which was acted by Sean Penn, who's not even gay," Baron Cohen told the crowd in the accent of the flamboyant-Austrian-fashionista character he plays in the movie. Wearing a furry black bull costume, complete with hooves and prominent genitalia, Baron Cohen, who engaged in similar in-character guerilla marketing in advance of his 2006 hit Borat, was greeted by a mix of gasps and cheers.

He’s not afraid to mock sacred cows & queers. His Borat movie poked fun at Americans but we can take it.

He’s an embarrassment. I don’t find him even slightly amusing. “Comedy” has descended to a new level.

This guy is not only annoying but he is an absolute moron. His so called comedy is not comedy at all and frankly I do not see any humor at all. By comparison, Dr. Kevorkian could get more laughs.

He’s about as funny as a botched circumcision.

He’s a nutcase, but very original.

Check out the Ali G show where he interviews a few of those nutjobs in California who live in trees so they won’t be cut down.

Why is this “thing” with a mental dent even reported on. I find him very disgusting. He has no point other than to disrupt other people lives. A puke is a puke is a puke.

He is like Jayne Mansfield...she always was in the news for her “girls” constantly popping out of her strapless dresses.

Why does Sacha Bull have man placed nipples? Cattle men of the world want to know? Perhaps with just a little more genetic or hormonal manipulation we could milk our Bull studs!

Borat - isn’t he one of the better reincarnations of Andy Kaufmann?
