Isla Fisher Wins ‘Funniest Poland Holocaust Bill Protest,’ By Going Skiing

Human charm-machine Isla Fisher, star of “Wedding Crashers” and spouse of Sacha Baron Cohen, is icing out the Polish government over the nation’s controversial new Holocaust bill.

The bill, which passed on Thursday in the Polish senate, would make it illegal to blame any Polish people for any crimes related to the Holocaust. Fisher, an Australian comedian born to Scottish parents in Oman, who converted to Judaism in 2007 when she married Baron Cohen, has had hands down the best comic approach to the horrifying legislation.

A topical Winter Olympics-themed burn of the Polish government over Holocaust denial? It’s all downhill (skiing) from here.
