Great premise; but can he really say anything that hasn't already been said by most of our current republican politicians? Nazi's are green socialists? Yawn. I think that was a debate point in last night's Republican Primary stemwinder. He's just gonna get rolled by the real thing, you know?
If you can call him "real", yeah.

I wish it was only satire, but this guy is real, and he's an idiot with considerable money and too many connections.

It should be good makeup, he's had 25 years to get it right

Well, "Lord Monkcton is Sasha Cohen" is no "Lord Monckton beat a man to death on the steps of a church", but it's a start. Five star because this is probably going to haunt the poor guy for the rest of his life.
Rodney Dangerfield faked his own death and now poses as an undercover Sancha Cohen character.

The Horace half-quote seems so out of place for the conversation that it's probably a fallback for when he needs to impress someone in an emergency. Sacha Cohen really understands the pseudo-intellectual dimwit persona.

As a dyslexic i have no idea how to even read the name Monckton. I'm just going to go with my gut and say Mynock

The puzzle's inventor Christopher Monckton, put up half the prize money himself, the other half being put up by underwriters in the London insurance market. According to Eternity's rules, possible solutions to the puzzle would be received by mail on September 21, 2000. If no correct solutions were opened, the mail for the next year would be kept until September 30, 2001, the process being repeated every year until 2003, after which no entries would be accepted.
Before marketing the puzzle, Monckton had thought that it would take at least three years before anyone could crack the puzzle. One estimate made at the time stated that the puzzle had 10500 possible attempts at a solution, and it would take longer than the lifetime of the Universe to calculate all of them even if you had a million computers.
Once solved, Monckton jokingly claimed that the earlier-than-expected solution had forced him to sell his 67-room house to pay the prize. Unprompted, in 2006, he disclosed that the claim had been a PR stunt to boost sales over Christmas, that the house's sale was unrelated, and that he was going to sell it anyway.

They've been uploaded here to POETV, but everyone should watch Potholer54's excellent series of videos debunking this guy's bullshit. (they're also easy to find on his YT channel) Basically he's a flat out fucking liar but, like most people of his type (creationists especially) he's managed to pervade a sort of made-up air of expertise because he never puts himself in a position where he can be called out on his nonsense by professionals or experts in the field, he either speaks as a lecture, or goes on interview shows with people who aren't really qualified to debunk him.
Also (just like creationists), he's never published a peer-reviewed paper.

Ive never heard of this guy before but I was convinced this guu was Coen because his face looks like it is fake.

Jesus, how did I miss this? And you're right Syd Midnight, we just get confused by British sarcasm over here.
