    Vuvuzela fever

    I can see I'm going to struggle to get any work done today.
    Got vuvuzelas blasting all over the place.

    I've got a clown on reception (note to self - must take photo)

    Some bloke is blowing a duck call...

    World cup fever has definitely struck with a vengeance.

    I've got one staff member with swollen lips from blowing the vuvuzela last night. I think he's going to need a doctor.

    How do you treat vuvuzela fever?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    The guys blowing the Vuvus are driving me crazy ======<() I don't think you can do anything for a week or 2 but after that. We had the wanderers 1 km from us go mad with the Portugal/Mozambique match on Tuesday and I find them unbearable. What a pleasure the concert ( a vuvu free zone) was to listen to.

    Anyone want to start a sweep on when the vuvu will be banned at the matches, I say from about the 8th match.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    I'm praying the damn things are biodegradable and all disintegrate the same day the World Cup finishes.

    Well I was thinking of a way to connect a few let’s say 5 Vuvuzela’s to my air compressor. Then at about midnight when the parties is still not over, I just switch the air compressor on and leave it... take a long drive to a friend’s house perhaps...

    I am not sure on “how” I would accomplish it yet but it’s worth the effort...

    Talking Thoughts on Vuvuzelas

    Legal challenge

    In early 2010 members of the Nazareth Baptist Church claimed that the vuvuzela belonged to their church, and threatened to pursue legal action to stop fans playing the vuvuzela at the World Cup.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vuvuzela

    Now here's a thought: Every black South African spends his money to blow on a silly noisy bit of plastic injection moulded by white owned companies.

    Take a look at who owns www.vuvuzela.com & www.vuvuzela.co.za

    ...makes you think...

    All we need to do now is to think up a noisy bit of plastic they can all suck on and getfilthy rich...(no not a plastic beer bottle - SAB's got dibbs on that one already)

    So are they therefore responsible for not placing a health warning message ( ears and lips ) on the devices ?

    I smell the opportunity for a class action here.

    Well, it leaves little doubt that World Cup fever has gripped the country. And Bafana look like they might be competitive in their group, at least.

    I have to admit I'm quite enjoying the spirit of things.

    Nobody would ever have thought that South Africans would be held up as anything but an example of awfulness.
    Desmond Tutu - after the '94 elections

    Seems appropriate for the way the world cup is going too...

    Rather paint them orange and use them to mark out potholes

    or use them for a new game. every time an official makes a BS statement, blow the vuvuzela... of course people would be blowing them non stop...
