Sacha Baren Cohen is the new Andy Kauffman except the content of his work itself is actually funny. In short - computer nerd fans of Borat hacked into Wikipedia and re-edited the entry
about Kazakhstan so it said that Borat was the President - among other things.

The interesting part about this is that while Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia edited by anyone, the profile for Kazakhstan is now locked and can't be edited by new or recent members of Wikipedia. Neither can the profiles of George W Bush or Tony Blair.
