Does Boston Tea Party make sense to you?

At first the idea of the Boston Tea Party did not make sense to Borat. Why should anyone throw away perfectly good tea? In fact, destruction of tea is punishable in Kazakstan by three to five years of socially-productive labor. No sense!

But then I learned that the Party was more like a symbol of what Americans wanted to do with the British. And of course it is better to get caught destroying property than throwing people, even English overboard.

When I was in New York promoting my movie, I stopped by one of those Internet tea houses and look up some information. This is what I found.

"The Boston Tea Party was a direct action protest by the American colonists against Great Britain in which they destroyed many crates of tea bricks on ships in Boston Harbor. The incident, which took place on Thursday, December 16, 1773, has been seen as helping to spark the American Revolution."
