Six Czech tourists who dressed up as Borat have been arrested in Kazakhstan for wearing nothing but mankinis.

The group posed for photos dressed in the revealing swimsuits in the capital city of Astana last week.

Local media reported on Tuesday the tourists were arrested and fined 22,500 Tenge ($67; 51) each for their "indecent" appearances.

2. "By mistake"?

I've seen some mistakes in my time and that would surely qualify as a doozy.

I feel bad for the medalist.

3. Yeah, someone googled it up


Like some flunky running the sound at a venue in Kuwait knows what the Kazakh national anthem sounds like.

Anthem mixups at international events are not uncommon.

The other group of folks who were not amused were the people in the village that Cohen used as his hometown. They had no idea he was saying awful things.

5. I guess I could see that.

Assuming they didn't listen to it ahead of time, or didn' t understand English.

Lyrics:

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

Kazakhstan, home of Tinshein swimming pool
It's length thirty meter, width six meter
Filtration system a marvel to behold
It remove 80% of human solid waste

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

Kazakhstan, industry best in world
We invented toffee and trouser belt
Kazakhstan's prostitutes, cleanest in the region
Except of course for Turkmenistan's

Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan, you very nice place
From plains of Tarashek to northern fence of Jewtown
Come grasp mighty penis of our leader
From junction with the testes to tip of its face!
