TMZ, in a journalistic scoop rivalling the uncovering of a break in at an office building, has managed to find the birth certificate for Sacha Baron Cohen’s newborn son. You may know him better as Ali G, Borat or a variety of other characters and you may also remember that Sacha is Jewish (no really, that’s a Jewish name), has a strong affinity with Israel (except for the time he was almost collateral damage in a suicide in a Tel Aviv hotel) and that his wife, Isla Fisher, converted to Judaism before their marriage.
What has TMZ uncovered? Well the full name of his new son (my emphasis):
We’ve obtained a copy of the birth certificate — filed with the L.A. County Dept. of Public Health — and it says Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen was born on March 17.
So not only was he born on both my Aliahversary Day (yeah, really) and St Patrick’s Day but they named him “Monty Brian”.
You know what I’m thinking. Really. You do.
Welcome to the world our new Messiah (or perhaps just another naughty little boy).
