Vuvuzelas At The World Cup: The Devil's Handiwork

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The vuvuzelas providing the ear-splitting soundtrack for the World Cup in South Afirca are proving a gold mine for manufacturers in China and a hit with buyers in the Asian nation.

The word "vuvuzela" sounds like a medical term for a part of the female anatomy, and the instrument sounds like a woman giving birth.

Soccer is the most boring game in the world, and now with vuvuzelas in the mix, it`s also the most annoying. I`d rather put up with the ungodly sounds of cats mating in my backyard, than tune into the World Cup and be assaulted by the infuriating sounds of thousands of vuvuzelas.

Let`s hope to God we never hear a vuvuzela at an American sporting event. The first idiot who brings a vuvuzela to a football or baseball game should be torn apart, limb by limb, by the fans.
