In what Kazak’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Ilyas Omarov is calling a “scandal,” a parody of Kazakhstan’s national anthem was somehow accidentally played during the medal presentation of Maria Dmitrienko for her victory at the 75 meter competition. The irreverent lyrics (reprinted at the end of this article) come from irreverent movie, Borat, in which a fictional journalist from that country tours America, staging crude encounters with real life locals.

Kazakh representatives have formed an official complaint against Olympic organizers, stating that, “In conducting an event of this level, the committee must obtain the official anthem, and that anthem must be played. We have sent a complaint via the Foreign Ministry.”

Maria Dmitrienko, for her part, kept composer while the raunchy lyrics were played, keeping a face of dignity during an undignified situation.

“The responsibility for the incident lies with the organizing committee of the country where the competition took place,” stated Sports Ministry official Tagat Yermegiayev.

This wasn’t the first time Kazakhstan has had their anthem tampered with. Old Soviet Union’s anthem was mistakenly played during a weightlifting tour in Paris, instead of the appropriate Kazakh anthem, and just days ago, Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ la Vida Loca’ was accidentally played in northern Kazakhstan at the opening of a ski festival.

“O Kazakhstan!” spoof lyrics:

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 invented 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!
