Impression News: The last remaining person in the UK still doing a Borat impression has been located and safely disposed of, the government has confirmed.
Since Channel 4 first aired the TV show in 2004, it’s thought that hundreds of thousands of people have done an impression of the fictional character from Kazakhstan. Now Defra, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has confirmed the last person has been found and culled.
“For almost a decade the people of the UK have lived under the threat of hearing a Borat impression,” said a Defra spokesman. “Now we are able to confirm that the nation-wide cull has been a success and we have successfully eliminated this disease.”
Scientists working for the department said that they were initially baffled and overcome at how quickly the Borat impression spread across the UK.
“Within a few weeks of the TV series airing we started receiving disturbing reports of people saying ‘sexy time’, ‘very nice’ and ‘anoos’ from all over the UK,” said Dr. Thomas Roach. “When we first took our startling findings to the government they laughed at us. Nine years later and nobody is laughing at Borat now.”
