Just in case this wasn't already perfectly clear, Sacha Baron Cohen does not play by the same rules as the rest of us.
When we heard Kim Jong-Il had passed away, we worried about the political implications of a new leader in North Korea. Baron Cohen, however, saw—what else?—another opportunity to be hilarious!
Oh, and promote his new movie, “The Dictator.” Let’s not forget about that.
Under the heading, “Official Statement From His Excellency Admiral General Aladeen—Supreme Leader, All Triumphant General And Chief Opthamologist of People’s Republic Wadiya,” Baron Cohen’s newest character remembers his dictator buddy in an over-the-top style only the man who played Borat can pull off.
“I am saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Kim Jong-Il. Our thoughts go out to his wife and 813 children. ‘K-Jo’ was a great leader, good friend and average double’s badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3-inch lifts. An extraordinary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout world,” said the “official” letter, which concludes by welcoming Kin Jong Un [sic] into the “Axis of Evil” on behalf of “Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Newt Gingrinch.”

J-Connection: Sacha Baron Cohen is Jewish. While he made us laugh until we cried as Borat and Ali G, his most impressive accomplishment is inducting into The Chosen People one of its hottest members, wife Isla Fisher, who converted to Judaism to marry Cohen in 2010.
