The 2010 World Cup is in full swing in South Africa, and we hear it's quite the party, especially once the vuvuzelas start blaring. What the hell is a vuvuzela, you ask? Click here to hear 'em in action. These South African plastic horns sound like (yes, really) an elephant screaming, and a lot of players & reporters want them banned from matches - think of the noise when tens of thousands of fans in a stadium are playing their vuvuzelas all at once. Ow - we bet earplugs are selling like hotcakes! Lots of people are buying vuvuzelas online ($10 each, in 5 colors) to trumpet at World Cup parties at bars & homes, but we're not so sure we want this South African import blaring each morning when we're trying to sleep. After all, those matches reach US televisions really early in the a.m.
So. You tell us. Vuvuzelas: Gooooooooooal or Fail?
