Borat 'elected' President of Kazakhstan by his fans
By Gulliver

Spoof Kazakhstan TV journalist Borat - created by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen - has been spreading his mischievous brand of mayhem and controversy around the world.

Now his fans have aped him by hijacking the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia and making the controversial reporter the President of Kazakhstan.

The fans logged onto internet site Wikipedia, which proudly boasts that "anyone can edit" it, and edited the page for the fictional character's home nation.

The national anthem opening line was changed to read, "Kazakhstan greatest country in the world. All other countries are run by little girls."

The alterations made to the site to fans also said the country's motto was "High Five."

Wikipedia has a practice of permitting free editing of over five million articles. But they have now banned users from contributing to the Kazakhstan page.

A notice at the top of the page says: "because of recent vandalism or other disruption, editing of this article by unregistered or newly registered is currently disabled."

According to newspaper reports, previous entries on Wikipedia pages for US President George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair have also been locked because of similar vandalism attacks.

Wikipedia says that false entries are usually spotted and corrected within minutes by other users.

The real President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has now been restored to his rightful place on Wikipedia.

The opening lines of the country's national anthem has also been corrected to read, "Golden sun in heaven, Golden corn in steppe, Legend of courage - It is my land."

The sexist, racist and anti-Jewish Borat gets a generous mention on Wikipedia's Kazakhstan page. It reports how "In 2005, Cohen ran foul of the Kazakh Foreign Ministry's Yerzhan Ashykbayev, who stated that the character's strange behaviour is not consistent with that of the Kazakh people, and that his government reserves the right to any legal action against Cohen."

The movie 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' has just been released in cinemas worldwide amid much fanfare and controversy.

Some of Borat's Sayings:

"In U.S. and A. they treat horses like we in Kazakhstan treat our women. They feed them two times a day. They have them sleep on straw in a small box. And for entertainment, they make them jump over fences while being whipped."

"American wine is like Kazakhstani wine, but not made from fermented horse urine."

"In Kazakhstan we have many hobbies: disco dancing, archery, rape, and table tennis."

"There are many job opportunities in the US and of A. For men, construction worker, taxi driver or accountant. For woman, prostitute."

"Throw the Jew down the well, so my country can be free, you must grab him by the horns, then we have a big party."
