O, Kazakhstan

This amuses me: the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences (y'know, the Oscar people) have announced that "Kazakhstan National Anthem" (from Borat) is eligible to be nominated for Best Original Song. Please let it be nominated, if only for the production number. It'd be "Blame Canada" all over again. Imagine the chorus of dozens (I hope) singing
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
Its length thirty meter and width six meter
Filteration system a marvel to behold
It remove 80 percent 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 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 northern fence of Jewtown
Come grasp the might penis of our leader
From junction with the testes to tip of its face!
Back on Sunday, the import music show I listen to, Passport Approved, actually played the song, treating it totally straight-faced as a Kazakh recording. That might have been the hardest I've laughed all week.
