Yes it's easy to fool people.

I had a conversation with a customer tonight that was transferred to me for reasons unknown. I was assisting her with something and she decided to make small talk. Here is how the conversation went:

Customer: I saw a guy called Borat tonight on TV. Are you familiar with him?
Me: Yes I am.
Customer: Do you think the guy's for real?
Me: I'm sorry?
Customer: Like is he really from that country?
Me: No mam he's not from Kazakhstan. It's just a comedian doing a schtick. He actually had a show called 'Da Ali G Show' a while back. It's just one of his many characters.
Customer (to husband): Honey apparently the guy's not real.
Husband: Yeah I thought so.

I should've told her Borat was real and Homeland Security is now investigating him under suspicion of espionage. They probably would've bought it.

She probably thought Blair Witch Project was real too.

I saw the movie... classic and so offensive at the same time.

Those are some hots chicks with Borat. I was waltching some of the Ali G show (with Borat) last night, I had to look away sometimes becuase it was just too much. I think I will have to watch the film.

That is hilarious that the customer made small talk about the Borat movie. I hadn't even heard of the guy until about a month and a half ago - now he's EVERYWHERE! crazy...
