Bruno Gets Mossad All Chickpea-ved

7/8/2008 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sacha Baron Cohen strikes again –- this time as a gay German needling the Israeli secret service about hummus.

The Jerusalem Post reports that SBC was in the Holy Land and met with a longtime Mossad operative when he went into schtick and asked him what the connection was between "a political movement and food? Vy humous?" He meant, uh, Hamas.

The confusion went on for a while, and Alpher says, "We smiled at the idiotic questions ... We knew something ludicrous was happening but couldn't quite figure it out."

McConaughspawn Emerges, Shirtless


Sharing at least one thing in common with his dad, the newborn son of Matthew McConaughey and GF Camila Alves was born last night, presumably wearing as little clothing as humanly possible.

The baby, says People, was born at 6:22 pm in L.A. and weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz. Matt's oldest brother Rooster tells the mag,"It's going to be fun! [Matt'll] make a really good dad because he's got a lot of patience. It's about time."

And you know Matty won't insist on the whole onesie thing.

Eva Rips Reporter for Rehab Ribbing


Eva Mendes has her limits.

The normally affable actress got prickly hot at a reporter who dared to make a joke about drug abuse. When Interview's David Colman quipped, "They're going to have to change the name of it to 'Alcoholics Unanimous,'" Eva nailed him: "I'm not making jokes ... I think it's a bit tacky that you made a joke."

Eva did a stint earlier this year at Cirque Lodge.

Party Favors: Drew and Apple Guy Split ... Menudo? Si, Si, Si! ... Hit-and-Run Victim Needs Relief


Meet-cute couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long split up, confirms her rep, after several months of very public romance. ... Who needs the tired reprise of NKOTB? How 'bout a real boy band – we're hearing that Menudo has a new single coming out called "Lost," that will have Ricky Martin dancing in his Speeedos. ... Lucy Crawford, the make-up artist who was hit and badly injured in an accident whose aftermath was caught by TMZ on tape, is facing way over $100,000 of hospital bills and a long recovery – and her brother has set up a relief fund in her name at a local Washington Mutual Bank. To donate, use benevolent account #341 075 0794.

Eva right, there no funny about substance abuse. Drew is in and out of relationships faster than Pam Anderson. Congrads to Matthew and Camila on their baby boy!

What does this comment have to do with anything?
Apparently Matt's oldest brother is called Rooster and he tells the mag,"It's going to be fun!

Just a thought: Doesn't the driver's insurance company pay the medical bills since it was the drunk chick's fault?

hmm    

cassy - YES!- the hit and run girl wont be paying her own medical bills! the girl who hit her's insurance will have to pay them... plus the girl who was hit will probably sue and get tons of money from that as well when she's feeling better.

The driver's car insurance will pay for her medical bills, and then some.

It's very unfortunate that this girl was hit by a car, I'm sure she's in alot of pain both physical and mental, BUT, BUT...no need to set up a "relief fund" the driver who hit her I'm sure has ample Insurance (she was driving a Mercedez), and her Bodily Injury coverage will pay ALL her medical bills plus some for her pain and suffering...

Um, there could be a problem with the hit and run driver's insurance coverage. I may be wrong, but I thought she had said it was her boyfriend's car she was driving. If so, it's very possible that her boyfriend's coverage would not cover the driver due to the fact that she was drunk and ran after hitting the gal. I hope it's not the case, but it is a possibility.

Um . . . AmandaLH, I KNOW they meant Hamas -- Bruno was comparing Hamas with hummus (which TMZ misspelled). I read about the schtick two days ago on a site other THAN (NOT "then") TMZ.
