Borat might cause WWIII

And by WWIII, I mean the Kazakhi government firing potatoes and cabbages towards us.

The Kazakhstan government has become enraged by the antics of Sacha Baron Cohen, most popularly known as Ali G. Sacha's portrayal of Borat, his character in which he pretends to be from Kazakhstan, has been offending the nation since the European Video Awards which he hosted as Borat.

And now a movie of Borat's adventures in the US has caused a diplomatic incident. The opening scene, which shows Borat lustily kissing his sister goodbye and setting off for America in a car pulled by a horse, had audiences in stitches when it was first shown last week. But the film...has prompted a swift reaction from the Kazakhstan government, which is launching a PR blitz in the States. Kazakhstan president Nursultan Nazarbayev is to fly to the US to meet President Bush in the coming weeks and on the agenda will be his country's image.

Bush will be hosting talks with their government because of Borat. First Anna Nicole goes to the Supreme Court, now the President has to soothe another country's government because of an offensive movie. The best part is that Sacha Cohen isn't even American, he's British!

Check out the trailer for this hilarious new movie:
