Did anyone actually see this? While certain sight gags were kind of funny -- the hunting trip, the conversations with the ex-gay ("your lips were made for sucking cock") and Paula Abdul actually sitting down on Mexican men pretending to be furniture -- most of it was pretty lame.

The much-hyped Arkansas gay wrestling scene seemed like something that could easily have devolved into a lynch mob. It was actually quasi-scary to watch.

By the end of it, I kept wondering what the point of it all was other than to show us that there are ignorant, homophobic and, frankly, hideous American people out there. I could've just turned on Fox News to find that out.

I read them daily, but often skip over most of them. There just happened to be several today that I found at least mildly entertaining or informative that I thought people here might actually care about.

Are you just hovering over the entertainment wires today?

Sacha Baron Cohen Takes Bruno To Arkansas
9 July 2008 10:31 AM, PDT


The Smoking Gun website has posted copies of ads used to lure thousands of Arkansans to staged events in Texarkana and Fort Smith for Sacha Baron Cohen's latest movie, Bruno, based on his TV character, a gay Austrian interviewer who specializes in entertainment and fashion topics. The ads promised one-dollar beer, "hot chicks" and "hardcore fights." As Tsg reported, both events ended with two male wrestlers "tearing each other's clothes off and, while in underwear, kissing down their opponent's chest." The display, said Tsg, "triggered Fort Smith fans to throw chairs and beer at the ring." Cohen's "Blue Collar Brawlin'" website, which promoted the events, shuttered after the filming. Tsg discovered they they were registered to Peto Philer of Algeria.
