    Facts are scare, but Isla Fisher, fiancee of Sacha Baron Cohen, gave birth to a baby girl yesterday, according to Australian and British media reports.

    No name yet, no further details, other than the blessed event took place here in Los Angeles.

    This Baby Borat is an American citizen!

    I’ve waited my entire life for this moment—the opening of a kosher Subway—seriously. 

    As a nice Jewish boy growing up in a kosher home, when Subway was the topic, my religion had always said no—but my heart always yearned for yes.

    So when I heard about LA’s first kosher Subway, it was finally time to listen to my heart and fulfill my lifelong destiny of eating a meatball sub.
