Comment: I heard a rumor that the comedian/actor who acts as Borat in the
movie Borat and Ali G in DA ALI G SHOW is named Sacha Baron Cohen. I also
heard that Leonard Cohen has a son named Adam Oscar Cohen. My friend told
me that they were the same person. He said that If you rearrange the
letters in Sacha Baron Cohen's name you get Aßan Oscar Cohen, which is the
name of Leonard Cohen's son! Could You please tell me if this rumor is
true or not.

Is he asking "Is it true that rearranging the letters in 'Adam Oscar' gets you 'Sascha Baron'?" Because, um, no, it doesn't. And using Greek* characters just makes it weirder.

*Greek, am I right? I'm not sure about that part.

Yes, that was my first thought: "Assan" doesn't really look much like "Adam"...

Plus, how is it a "rumour" that the guy's name is Sacha Baron Cohen? Plus, if you're smart enough to submit a question like this, how hard can it be for you to look it up at Wikipedia, or the IMDB, or...

His last name is also Baron Cohen, not Cohen. Baron is apparently a variation on Baruch. His father's name is Gerald Baron Cohen, who is Welsh-born, not at all Canadian.

Also, am I the only one who always has to think for a moment when he or Sasha Cohen are mentioned?

This leads to one of my pet peeves. I can't stand the questions in the entertainment section of most newspapers. These are the columns where people can ask questions about celebrities. There is almost always a question that you'd have to be living under a rock not to know, so I must presume some people just want to get their names in the paper.

Dear Selebrity Snoop,
I have a bet with my husband, and need your help. I say Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are a couple, but my hubby says Tom would never cheat on Nicole Kidman. There is $5 riding on this one!

Dear Wilma,
You're now $5 richer! The two lovebirds recently wed. Tom and Nicole, sadly, divorced a while back, and Ms. Kidman has also remarried. Tell hubby to pay up!

I don't know what Sacha Cohen's real name is, but she sure can skate.
