London 2012 hire consultants to advise on correct Kazakh national anthem

British taxpayers are set to cough up even more in costs for the London Olympic Games this year after organisers announced they felt the need to hire national anthem consultants to ensure they do not embarrass themselves in the same way Kuwait did recently.

A Kazakh shooting medallist was played the mock anthem from the film “Borat” by Sacha Baron Cohen, and London 2012 decided they had to commit to spending money now to avoid a similar slip up.

“No country does ignorance of others better than the British, so we think this investment is fully justified,” confirmed a member of the organising committee.

“We’re concerned that a work experience lad might be in charge of the sound that day, and they could have access to their Spotify playlist, which could prove disastrous.

“We could even have “God Save the Queen” by the Sex Pistols blazing out at some stage.

“Although we’re still pretty confident there won’t be any Brits winning medals, so we probably won’t have to worry about that.”

    What other wacky anthems can we look forward to?

    Born in the USA for America? (Regan’s people missed the satire)
    Springtime for Hitler for Germany?
    The Skippy theme tune for Australia?

    It’ll be exciting finding out!

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog.
    It looks like some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers
