This is just effing hilarious in every single way imaginable.

Tears are coming out of my face.


Officials in Astana famously lose their sense of humor when it comes to Borat, so the playing of his spoof version of Kazakhstan's national anthem at a sporting ceremony in Kuwait isn't raising many smiles in the Kazakh capital.

The Borat anthem was accidentally played by organizers at a medal ceremony at the Arab Shooting Championships. Gold medalist Maria Dmitrienko stood on the podium looking bemused at the mix-up, which was described as a "scandal" by Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman Ilyas Omarov.

The false anthem - which extols Kazakhstan's potassium and prostitutes and memorably contains the line "Kazakhstan - greatest country in the world, all other countries are run by little girls" - was played in the 2006 movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
