Bruno and Eminem's ass face prank was a hoax

Sasha Baron Cohen at the MTV Movie AwardsIt looks like Eminem wasn't the real butt of Sacha Baron Cohen's prank at the MTV Movie Awards. (And yes, I do get paid by AOL to write jokes. God bless the writer's strike!)

Entertainment Weekly confirmed from an unidentified source close to the network that Cohen said the prank was staged and that Eminem wasn't really mad that he got a face full of ass.

EW also reported that Scott Aukerman, the show's head writer who comedy geeks will recognize as a Mr. Show actor/writer and one-half of the comedy duo The Fun Bunch, leaked the news on his blog. That entry seemed to have disappeared from his blog as fast as Eminem's ass-smelling face from the awards show.

A small amount of skepticism creeped through the interwebs after the moment, and rightfully so. Remember back when Triumph the Insult Comic Dog tried to get in the rapper's face during the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards and Eminem got all huffy with puppet master Robert Smigel? You know your ego is out of control when an inanimate dog has a better sense of humor than you.

It seems that Eminem has since grown a chuckle hump, if the story is indeed true and Marshall Mathers was in on the joke. It's also a brilliant one at that. Cohen is a born media miscreant who loves creating trouble in the media, and Eminem always seems to find new ways to cause trouble of his own. It was a perfect prank comedy marriage, even if such marriages are no longer allowed in California.

I ain't buyin what eminem is sellin
No doubt it was Bruno's nuts he was smellin
But the look on his face and his reaction was tellin
Hell no it was obvious that he wasn't feelin it
Havin his face where another make takes a shit
Then frontin it off like it was some sorta skit
Hell no, hell no, you know I ain't buyin it
For that homophobe to have his face up in someone's dick
The look on his face when he got up outa there so quick
He got played now he's just tryin to act so slick
And laugh it off like it was some kinda planned out trick
Laugh all you want there, mister funny boy
Thinkin you can fool us with your stupid little ploy
Now the world thinks that you're just another rumpster
And Borat better watch out or he'll end up in a dumpster
We know better, Marshall, you were sniffing at his cup
Maybe the real Slim Shady finally stood up

You could tell from the moment Eminem looked up.

He's a horrible actor.

I still think Sasha peaked with Ali G.

Absolutely, Da Ali G Show was far superior to anything he's done since. After all, he actually got the former head of the UN to say "I'm Boutrous Boutrous Ghali, put down your guns and listen to Bob Marley"...
