Kazakistan Prints Money with Spelling Mistake

Not only that but who is this nobody head,
why not use my good head?

The Kazakhstan central bank has misspelled the word "bank" on its new notes.

The bank plans to put the misprinted notes - worth 2000 tenge ($20) and 5000 tenge ($50) - 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.

"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."

BB: Rumor has it that apparently Borat is claiming that they have also put the wrong head on the notes.
