Kazakhstan misspells BANK on banknotes

Is Borat involved with this somehow? What a wonderful joke :) The Kazakhstan central bank has misspelled the word bank on its new notes, officials said Wednesday.

The bank plans to put the misprinted notes worth 2,000 tenge ($15) and 5,000-tenge into circulation in November and then gradually withdraw them to correct the spelling.

The move has drawn the ire of the Central Asian states politicians who urged the bank to abandon the notes altogether.

The mistake ... is not just a spelling problem it has political undertones, a letter from members of parliament to President Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

We urge you to tell the National Bank not to put out the notes with a mistake in the Kazakh language.
