Borat and Kazakhstan National Anthem. Cue hysterical laughter all weekend


Once in a while a story emerges that has one looking at the date to see if it is April 1st. I read this story in the Sunday Times yesterday and the full story is on the link below. But the gist is that a Kazakstahn athlete had won a shooting tournament gold medal in Kuwait and instead of the real national anthemn they played the Borat version. Easy to get this wrong? I don’t think so. The first notes were followed by the stirring words ” Kazakstahns prostitutes the cleanest in the region”, followed by the boast of its swimming pool with ” a filtration system to marvel at. It removes 80% of solid human waste”
