Humiliated frat boys sue over 'Borat' portrayal - CNN.com

As if there wasn't enough bad publicity about fraternities. I just pray these guys were not Sig Eps.
Two fraternity boys want to make lawsuit against "Borat" over their drunken appearance in the hit movie.
[...]
The lawsuit claims that in October 2005, a production crew took the students to a bar to drink and "loosen up" before participating in what they were told would be a documentary to be shown outside of the United States.
[...]
The film "made plaintiffs the object of ridicule, humiliation, mental anguish and emotional and physical distress, loss of reputation, goodwill and standing in the community," the lawsuit said.
Hmmph. Sounds like the "drunken stupor" defense to me ("I was drunk, so it doesn't count!"). It never worked for me. It probably won't work for them. Of course, we know that Sig Eps never get drunk and offensive, either on or off camera. Right?

As Dean Wormer said: "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."
