Borat anthem played for Kazakh medalists

From the BBC: "Kazakhstan's shooting team demanded an apology after a spoof national anthem from the comedy film Borat was played instead of the real one at a medal ceremony in Kuwait." Best potassium in the world.

  1. Having spent some time in Kuwait and Iraq, I can tell you this is not surprising but inevitable in fact.

  2. You’ve gotta feel for the poor Kazakhs. From complete obscurity to a global running joke.

    I guess their profile did deserve to be raised, though. Check out the size of the joint!

    Kazakhstan greatest country in the world.
    All other countries are run by little girls.
    Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium.
    Other countries have inferior potassium.

    Kazakhstan home of Tinshein swimming pool.
    It’s length thirty meter and width six meter.
    Filtration system a marvel to behold.
    It remove 80 percent of human solid waste.

    Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place.
    From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown.
    Kazakhstan friend of all except Uzbekistan.
    They very nosey people with bone in their brain.

    Kazakhstan industry best in the world.
    We incented toffee and trouser belt.
    Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region.
    Except of course Turkmenistan’s

    Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place.
    From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown.
    Come grasp the might phenis of our leader.
    From junction with the testes to tip of its face!

    1. There is a time and place for humour.  An honorific official ceremony is not it.

  4. This has inspired me (if I ever have to opportunity) to substitute the real American anthem for Borat’s rendition.
    This is not funny but it increases my appreciation for Baron Cohen’s noble pursuit of ultimate misinformation dissemination.
