Ahh -the British Sense of Humour...

So we have the MTV Music awards, hosted by "Kazakhstan's sixth most famous man", Borat Sagdiyev.



Who introduced Madonna with the opening line: "Welcome to the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest.The singer before me - who was he? It was very courageous of MTV to start the show with a genuine transvestite"



Some folks lept on this... Without of course finding out that Borat is in fact another creation of the same guy who did Ali-G (and the voice of the Lemur King in Madagascar - "I like to do-it-, do-it", etc) , Sacha Baron Cohen.. Come on chaps - proper Journalists do research...
