Every time someone mentions Simon Baron-Cohen, the image that springs to my mind is that of Sacha Baron Cohen, and I end up with an autism doctor who looks like this:

Just saying.

I have heard that the two are related but the SBC of autism looks rather more like a "normal" man and less like Borat.

Oh, I know. Well, I didn't know the two were related. But I know what the Simon one looks like. Yet the image persists.

Not that Sacha Baron Cohen looks all that odd when he's not trying to.

Not half as much as it does for Simon Baron-Cohen, I'll wager... :D

That must take some serious living down.

I utterly IDOLISE Sacha Baron-Cohen...

But I might feel a lot differently if he was my cousin. :oops:

I watched "Talledega Nights" last night, and though I loved every minute, I have to say, if that was MY cousin, I would be sitting at my desk staring down a loaded deed poll RIGHT NOW :lol:

Can you find the typo on this web page? I will give you one hint: it is a part of a link.

Hmm. I listened to Simon Baron-Cohen on the radio once, and he sounds a lot different to what he looks like to me.

"Borat" is also a orthodox Jew if i am not mistaken, most people cant really see how one can combine that behaviour with that religious view... but i think its brilliant :D


the name Cohen/Koen/Kohen ect is by the way is the mark of an ancient Priest caste...

I'm kind of picturing what an autism research paper would sound like, if dictated by Borat...


"Hello! My name-a Borat! Todays, I will be talking to yous about autism. Yous sees, childrens with autism have what I calls "retardation". Some of these retardation childrens are very naughty childrens. It is best to keeps thems in cages. I keeps my retard brother Bilo in a cage, and hes is very funny when caged up. Maybe Bilo has autism. I don't knows. Anyways, that is all for todays, peoples! Tomorrow, I talks to yous about the dreaded Ass-burgers childrens!"

He he. My Dad found a lifesized cardboard cut-out of Borat in the lyrca suit, which he gave to me.

While my housemate was on holiday I put it in his bedroom so it was the first thing he saw. It scared him so much he put his fist though it. lol

Hehe! The Borat-on-Autism scripts are great.

It might be rather nice to have Sacha Baron Cohen as your cousin. My cousins say it's great to have me as their cousin because there's pretty much nothing they can do that doesn't look pretty good when compared to the possibility of behaving like me.

Where they accidentally put "id=25" between "id=8" and "id=9"? Other than that, I have no idea.
