Monumental screwups

I'm not a big one for beauty contests; I don't think I've ever watched one since before Bert Parks died.

But I missed something special today. It seems that the announcer announced that Miss Columbia was the winner. Actually it was supposed to be Miss Philippines.

It reminds me of this.

Mariya Dmitriyenko had just won the gold medal in the 75 target event at the 10th Arab Shooting Championship in Kuwait and as she stood on the podium with the other medal winners she was expecting to hear the sound of the Kazakhstan national anthem.

Instead the obscene lyrics of the spoof Kazakhstan anthem from the film Borat began to play. ...

Ms Dmitriyenko looked around to see if anyone else had noticed the wrong music was playing, they hadn't so she was forced to listen all the way to end of the tune with her hand on her heart and a bemused look on her face.

The organisers had found a copy of the anthem online and hadn't realised it was from the satirical film the head coach of Kazakhstan's team, Anvar Yunusmetov, told on Friday.

The organizers later apologized abjectly for the mistake.
