Wo-wo-wee-wah! Kazakh athletes were left enraged after a parody of their national anthem from the spoof film “Borat” was played for a gold medallist at a competition in Kuwait.
Mariya Dmitriyenko won a gold medal in the 75 target event at the 10th Arab Shooting Championship in Kuwait, when the offending anthem was played. Instead of hearing “My Kazakhstan”, (you can listen to a excerpt here), she was forced to endure a song that mocked her country.
Aww. She stood through the whole song! Probably wondering what the hoo-yah was going on!
She lifts her shoulders in shock, says “pfffft” in a “You’ve got to be kidding me” kind of way, tilts her head, brushes her cheek, and laughs it off – all in less than two seconds. Pretty classy. Chancellor Merkel, pretty classy.
And the guy with the phone – he timed that photo perfectly!
There was a ‘MythBusters’ misfire — the popular television science show sends one of its experiments hurtling into a Dublin neighborhood. Fortunately no one was hurt, but residents were stunned to find out a cannonball came whizzing through their community.
The incident occurred between 4:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. The cannonball was fired from the bomb range at Camp Parks. It soared 700 yards into a house on Cassata Place, bounced across a road, onto a roof and into a minivan on Springvale Drive.
And we are such big fans of Adam and Jamie and the gang at MythBusters, this was just depressing:
Earlier Tuesday, the show’s official Twitter account retweeted a tweet by Grant Imahara, one of the hosts, saying they would be working with “heavy artillery.” Both tweets have since been deleted.
Lame. Probably lawyers and producers behind that, but still – lame.
Update: We just found something entirely too appropriate for Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader: the reaction from Adam and Jamie to the bathtub blowup scene from Lethal Weapon 2. (This was just posted at the MythBusters FaceBook page a few days ago.)
Excerpt: “That was one of the nicest sounding explosions we’ve had in a while!”
HOO HOO – very funny video of a guy who stepped into the hallway behind President Obama and VP Biden during the health care speech last night. You can almost feel the guy’s stomach drop into his shoes when he realizes what he’s done and does a slow pirouette outta there. (Via)
