The world thought that the wild cheering recently heard in Kazakhstan was caused solely by the fact that Corot, a satellite searching for Earth-like planets beyond our solar system, had just been launched. Not so.
Kazakh natives were REALLY rejoicing about the fact that aboard the satellite was obnoxious reporter Borat, who would never again be seen on Earth. Arranging his 'trip' hadn't been easy. It had involved sending him a special invitation to the launching, paying a huge fee to Gypsies to smuggle him aboard, and the hiring of computer experts to program the working of the satellite's trapdoor so that Borat would be "dropped off" when another universe was discovered.
An expensive project -- but according to the villagers, worth every penny. They took great glee in recalling Borat's 'pre-boarding' words: "I great fanny of outer space." An old man told The Spoof reporter, "I was glad to hear that, since he'll be spending the rest of his life there." Clapping his hands joyfully as the satellite took off, the old man added, "Bravo! That pest is gone forever."
