Sacha Baron Cohen trolls conservative rally with racist sing-along

Dressed as a hillbilly, Sacha Baron Cohen pranked a conservative rally on Saturday, Variety confirms. The legendary British comedian got on stage at "March For Your Rights 3" in Olympia, Washington and hosted a sing-along — "getting some people in the crowd to sing racist lyrics about President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the 'Wuhan flu.'"

According to social media posts from the event’s organizers, Baron Cohen disguised himself as the leader of a political action committee who wanted to sponsor the rally. He brought his own security team who prevented organizers from kicking him off stage once he began singing and turning off the power to his microphone.

Once on stage and in disguise, Baron Cohen performed a song with a band and had members of the crowd repeat words back to him...

“Obama, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do. Fauci don’t know his head from his ass. He must be smoking grass. I ain’t lying, it ain’t no jokes. Corona is a liberal hoax. Dr. Fauci, what we gonna do? Inject him with the Wuhan flu. WHO, what we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do,” Baron Cohen sang.

A UK man dressed as a bush sneaks through a neighborhood on lockdown

A UK man from Stevenage, Herts was spotted making his way around his neighborhood dressed as a bush. The couple next door caught the man on video and assumed that he was trying to avoid lockdown in a most ridiculous fashion.

Turns out, it was all just a prank, the man trying to bring a laugh to neighbors stuck indoors. It's unclear whether the next door neighbors were in on the gag.

Later he returned with his two kids disguised as garbage bags.

Frightened fliers rejoice! Sacralize your seating with faux stained glass windows

Artist and entrepreneurial prankster Danielle Baskin is at it again. This time, Danielle has created a line of cling-on faux stained glass windows that you can slap up on any commercial plane window for inflight prayer and reflection. "Now, isn't that special?," sayeth the Church Lady.

She writes on Facebook:

Made faux stained glass for plane windows so you can pray during your domestic flights.

This is a flexible film that clings to glass. There’s no adhesive, so you can easily take this on and off your window to improve your in-flight prayer experience.

It also protects against any germs that might be on windows! It's infinitely washable with soap and water or can be sprayed with disinfectant.

Rolls up easily for travel.

The windows are available in five sizes (to fit your aircraft of choice) at her Magic Store .

See more coverage of Danielle's work on Boing Boing.
