    The British comedian, known for his extravagant and often hilariously offensive jokes, can't even escape his fans in Sydney, but he can always hide from them using the persona of the inimitable Borat Sagdiyev!

    Sacha Baron Cohen, who moved with his family to Australia seeking more peace and privacy, found a good way to decline a photo with an Aussie fan of his while still leaving the man with a fantastic keepsake, according to the Daily Mail.

    "Just met Sacha Baron Cohen at Parisi's and he said no photos please but I can sign something", the fan wrote. "So I thought about a message for my son Alex and this is what he wrote. The man is a legend!" he said in a description for a picture of a handwritten note, saying "Alex, I like sex! Borat".

    ​Now, this wasn't just a random joke, but a catchphrase of one of Cohen's most famous characters - the obnoxious "Kazakh television journalist" Borat Sagdiyev, known for his outrageous obscenities and extremely bizarre worldview. Borat was the star of a 2006 mockumentary film and last year Cohen made a sequel, winning two Golden Globe awards.
