A sure sign it has gone to hell, from its newsletter email:

colette loves Borat!
20th Century Fox and colette invite you to discover American culture and its etiquette standards via Kazakhstan and its very own patron saint, Borat - who else? And that's not all: to complete the lesson, we're offering a very special Borat kit which even includes the ultimate summer fashion accessory: the Borat one-piece bathing suit !!!
The first ten people who respond to the following question correctly before midnight on Tuesday October 31st are requested to stop by colette and collect a very special gift pack comprising 1 x cinema ticket, 1 x t-shirt, 1 x sticker, 1 x moustache and 1 signed poster.
Question: "What is the name of Borat's sister?"

I thought Colette may have jumped the shark upon hearing they have a newsletter.

RJMAN - Can't help you with the answer...all I know is she's number 4 prostitute in all of Kazakhstan.

I watched Letterman last night to see Tiki Barber (Seems the only reason I ever watch him anymore is to appreciate Corvato's suits) and Borat came on. I really dont have anything else to say, except that his style of suit contrasted detrimentally to David's


Oh, and I didnt realize you could "Jump the shark" more than once.

Colette used to have these fun seasonal magazines that they sent out to subscribers. There was a requisite Comme des Garcons ad on every back cover but the vague irreverence in the content was compelling enough to have it mailed to your residence every quarter.

I have a pic of the Borat swimsuit. It's hilarious! I'll try to post it.
