Borat Make Glorious Gypsies Famous!

BREITBART.COM - Now Romanians Say 'Borat' Misled Them: "The name of this remote Romanian village means 'mud,' and that's exactly what angry locals are throwing at comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Cohen used Glod's Gypsies as stand-ins for Kazakhs in his runaway hit movie, 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.' Now offended villagers are threatening to sue the film's producers for paying them a pittance to put farm animals in their homes and perform other crude antics.

Not everyone in Glod is upset. Sorina Luca, 25, excitedly described how she was given $3.30 to bring a pig into her home and let the producers put a toy rifle into the hands of her 5-year-old daughter for one scene.

"I really liked it," she said. "We are poor and miserable. Nothing ever happens here."

At least one of them is telling the truth. No one would have even known it was Romania if you hadn't said anything. Everyone thought you were actors and the scenes were shot in England or someplace.
