Ali G Almost Causes Riot At Virginia Rodeo
British comedian Ali G, (Sasha Baron Cohen), is reported to have narrowly escaped causing a near-riot at a rodeo in Virginia over the weekend, while filming a new episode of HBO's hilarious "Da Ali G Show." According to witnesses, a man who introduced himself as Borat from Kazakhstan, (one of Cohen. alter egos), appeared at the rodeo on Sunday after organizers agreed to have him sing the national anthem.

After telling the crowd he supported America's war on terrorism, he declared, "I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq down to the lizards. And may George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq." He then sang a garbled version of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

1. That's pretty funny...
Wonder what they got pissed at more, the Iraq comment or the garbling of the Star Spangled Banner?

2. Whoa......that must have created some major cognitive dissonance.
I can only imagine how the cowboy crowds would react to that.
