  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

It seems the nightmare of Borat has come back to haunt Kazakhstan.

The Asian country was outraged by the Sacha Baron Cohen-inspired film of 2006 Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and banned it from being shown in their county.

But now, incredible footage from a medal ceremony in Kuwait has shown Borat's satirical version of the National Anthem played out INSTEAD of the genuine one.

How does that happen? I was ticked off yesterday when they screwed up the US National Anthem before the Pens/Sens game. While I do find it funny (in both cases) I just can't see how something like that can happen.

I remember a baseball game where the Canadian flag was mistakenly displayed upside down by some idiot at a stadium in the US and the next game the American flag was treated likewise in Toronto....made quite a stir.

That's a pretty big goof.  :lol:

If it's a genuine mistake though I would hope people could laugh at it rather than feel a need to fire the person.

That said though, I could understand why it would get someone fired.

wasnt something similar done to another country, except it was the death march that was played?

gotta love how she was a good sport about it though. it was pretty rude all the same, to get a countrys' national anthem so exceptionally wrong.

'Well, the usual procedure is to leap 200 feet in the air and spread yourself over a wide area…'

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
