As if I ever want to hear one of those noisemakers again. I’ve been skipping watching the World Cup to avoid the noise...and yes, I know I can mute the TV...but I reject that I have to...screw the advertisers as far as I’m concerned. If they want my ear, they’ll have to protect my ears.

I like them to the extent that when I see someone holding one, I know instantly, that person is someone to avoid.

It's the equivalent of having a t-shirt that says "I AM AN OBNOXIOUS MORON"

“Another major African contribution to world culture and civilization.”

Right up there with “necklacing” and eating ones neighbors.

And, let’s not forget selling your neighbors to the Muslim slave traders, either.

I lived in South Africa in 88 and 89 and never heard one of the damn things until the World Cup. Someone needs a rear end kicking.

Three thousand years of African culture and all they have to show for it is feathered hats and these stupid horns.

While the noise is annoying, it has become I think the pre-eminent symbol of this world cup, as such I wanted to order one for laughs (not to blow it just to have around), have written to a store in SA asking if they would ship one of the sockzelas here to Canada. The sockzela is the vuvuzela with a sock over it printed in the flag of your choice, no reply so far I am saddened :(

If anyone else wants one... /me runs and hides :)

Hey that's a great idea, they are collapsible, so easy to carry in with you to his bore fests, man the possibilities, everyone sneak in with vuvuzelas and then let rip when the Messiah starts speaking :)

I totally agree, plus, I don’t like watching soccer anyway, and find no charm in watching soccer for 90 minutes to a stirring 1-0 score and listening to that ridiculous noise. When in the hell did that incessant racket start with those damn horns?????? What were they thinking????????? Sorry, but I’d rather watch pro wrestling where the winner is predetermined and covered with Vaseline.

I enjoy an occasional soccer game, I used to have season tickets back in the NASL days, but I refuse to watch the World cup with that incessant humm....it's on a frequency that I just can't stand.

I don't mind the low scoring games if the skill level is high enough because then the ball control and passing can be entertaining in themselves...just like watching a Barry Sanders 8 yard run that didn't score a TD...the balance, control and creativity can be enjoyable in themselves. But not if I have to listen to what sounds like hornets on steroids.

“, shucks . . . why don’t you add eating babies.”

I didn’t know they were prone to that behavior.

Isn’t that a Democrapic/Libtard behavior?

Just askin’.

I had one of those horns in the early 60s when I was just a sprout growing up in N.E. Ohio. Never quite got the hang of playing it.

If I want to hear South Africans blowing horns, I’ll listen to Hugh Masekela.
