    Don’t Like the Vuvuzela?  It’s the Church’s Fault!

    Don’t Like the Vuvuzela?  It’s the Church’s Fault!

    You know that annoying horn, the vuvuzela, from World Cup Soccer fame?  Well, word is, that it was really the invention of the church.  That's right, the Nazareth Baptist Church of KwaZula-Natal says it is the confirmed originator of the plastic instrument.  In fact, it is threatening to take other manufacterers to court to make them stop making the horn.

    Great quote from the church about the competition:  "They must stop placing orders with these Mickey Mouse companies who are opportunists."  According to their spokesman, church members who make the horn have lost income, and the church has threatened sponsors such as Coca-Cola with boycotts should they continue to use it in their marketing.

    Also interesting, the company that makes the horns also makes an earplug kit for soccer fans irritated by noise.  Genius.

    Not so genius:  everything else about this story.  You can read more here...

      I would hate to think that the sound of the last trumpet would sound like droning bees…

      I hate Vuvuzela sound, but the worldcup is finished and now my ears are save.
