Kazakhs Krush Borat
Authorities in Kazakhstan have been so angered by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's alter ego, Kazak TV host Borat Sagdiyev, they have closed his website.
The comedian, best known for his Ali G character, satirises the central Asian country as racist and sexist.
Baron Cohen used Kazakh-owned www.borat.kz to respond sarcastically to legal threats from officials. The country's web regulators said they suspended the site to stop the British comic from "bad-mouthing" the country.
(The site www.borat.kz has been pulled from all major Webcaches, including GOOGLE's)
