Am I the only one who doesn't get Sacha Baron Cohen?

    I just don't find him funny and am trying to avoid his stuff.

    When ever he's in the news and a photo or story comes across the wire, it just irritates me.

    I'm beginning to feel old.

    J/K. I don't get Sacha Baron Cohen either. I find him unfunny.

    Apparently, you're not alone, Oggie.

    Personally, I find him hilarious.

    I have found him funny in small doses, but Mrs. D_B_V and I made it less than an hour into Borat before we lost interest. Luckily, just before the poop at etiquette class bit.

    I can see why others enjoy him, but it doesn't work for me.

    Borat is completely un-rewatchable. I laughed my ass off when I saw it in the theater, but when I watched it again on DVD, all of the shock value was gone, and it was just cringeworthy.

    I don't get him either. But I doubt his style is aimed at my age group.

    Excellent point about the cringeworthy aspect.
