Vuvuzelas take the world by storm

Thanks to the soccer World Cup, the monotonous droning of vuvuzelas might replace singing at football matches throughout the world. According to this post, more than 1,5 million of the plastic bugles have been sold in Europe. Afrikaanse vuvuzela’s vliegen over toonbank: al 1,5 miljoen | Poundsterling: financieel nieuwsoverzicht:
Ondanks het groeiende aantal klachten over de Afrikaanse vuvuzela's zijn de toeters een verkoophit. In Europa zijn er al meer dan 1,5 miljoen verkocht.

And "vuvuzela" is one of the trending keywords on Twitter.

My suggestion: reserve vuvuzelas for applause, when a goal is scored or something like that. It would be a pity if they replaced singing altogether.
