Pennylicious posted this a few days ago, but we thought we'd wait for the opening day of Borat to pick up on it:

ALMATY, Kazakhstan - 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 state's politicians who urged the bank to abandon the notes altogether.

Let's hope Borat keeps his accounts off-shore.
