This Bank Note Is Brought To You By The Letter H

Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter ego Borat has been accused of misrepresenting and denigrating the people of Kazakhstan by saying, among other things, that they drink horse urine, beat their wives, and hate Jews. But to date he hasn’t mentioned their spelling skills. Last week it was revealed that 80% of the country’s newly issued currency incorrectly spells the word “bank” as “bankh.” That’s “h” as in “Hoops!” I mean, “Whoops!” Since so much of the new money is already in circulation they’re not going to recall it but instead will distribute bottles of Wite-Out. Borat’s movie can’t be half this funny.
