The white supremacist attempting to turn a small North Dakota town into a 'white enclave' has undergone a DNA test which proves he is of Sub-Saharan African heritage. Craig Cobb submitted to the test as part of The Trisha Show's ongoing 'Race in America' series and was given the results by the host, Trisha Goddard, to the delight of her studio audience. On hearing the results Cobb immediately dismissed the news that genetically he is 14 per cent Sub Saharan African, 86 per cent European, as 'statistical noise.' He later said: 'I agreed to the test because I assumed it was science.' Instead, he said, it was a scientifically bankrupt procedure, the product of 'craven and debased executives,' whose 'goal is to shock.'
At the Britannia Awards on Saturday, Sacha Baron Cohen staged a skit in which he murders an elderly woman. Presenter Salma Hayak came out on stage with a woman in a wheelchair, introduced as 87-year-old Grace Collington, the "oldest surviving actor to have worked with Charlie Chaplin in a silent movie." Cohen then took the stage to accept an award from Collington and a cane used by Chaplin. In an attempt to dance with the cane, Cohen tripped and pushed the woman off the stage, where she landed face down and remained still. Cohen remarked, "Grace Collington is the oldest, sorry, was the oldest...I dedicate my award to her. It's obviously a tragedy, but on the bright side what a great way to go. She'll probably make the Oscars 'In Memoriam' section. Anyway, tonight is not about her. It's about me." Some audience members laughed, but others didn't find it so funny, and the host had to interrupt the show to calm the crowd.
Although I remember Andy Kaufman doing a similar skit:
