In case you don't read the Arkansas Blog or somehow missed this item yesterday and have not yet read about it on websites like Vulture and the Smoking Gun, it seems likely that Sacha Baron Cohen, under the guise of his Bruno character, was in Fort Smith and Texarkana last month covertly shooting segments for his forthcoming film, reportedly called "Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt."

Promises of $1 beer, hot chicks and blood-sport lured locals to "Blue Collar Brawlin'" in Fort Smith and "Red, White and Blood Cage Fighting" in Texarkana. There a fighter billed as "Straight Dave" took on audience plants. Then things took an unexpected twist. In the ring, the two "fighters" stripped down to their skivves and kissed, passionately. Then the beer started flying.
