Dat's all, folks

I was searching for some, you guessed it, Ali G clips last night when I stumbled upon what is quite possible Ali's (Sasha Baron Cohen) funniest performance: what turns out to be a roast of England's most famous couple, Posh Spice and David Beckham (whose expulsion from the English side came 5 years too late, btw). At certain points in the video you can sense just how uncomfortable the Beckhams are.

I also unearthed Ali G's address at Harvard's convocation (2004), but unfortunately it wasn't very funny. I'm surprised that Harvard, of all places, invited him. Maybe they had someone else in mind merely made a mistake on the letterhead: they were actually looking for Ali C, a prominent psycholinguist from Denmark.
