Those funking Vuvuzelas, those plastic trumpets at the Word Cup that sound like a swarm of bees on heat are to remain FIFA has ruled.
Complains have been flooding in about the annoying sound that these instruments are making for the home viewer, the best part is, the more sophisticated your equipment is , the more annoying the sound!
For those who don't know, its like a million bees permanently hovering around the main microphone .

I cab vouch for that...I've got a decent sound system for the tele..and fark me, it was the most irritating noise!

Thing is, it's "their" way of expressing support etc, can you imagine of people told us to stop the singing and chants on the terraces?

I'm not a great one for watching the footie, but what I have seen of it has really pissed me off due to the drone in the background

Indeed. Really, really annoying. Still, could be worse I suppose..

My World Cup is being ruined by that dull incessant drone. What were ITV thinking hiring Adrian Chiles?

Oh, so South Africans are starving then? Stop spending my donations on annoying shitty plastic trumpets and buy some fucking rice.

Cunts.

After almost 20 years of marriage, I have developed the ability to tune out of annoying background noises.

However I have noticed that after 15-20 minutes of ignoring it, I find myself saying "yes dear" for no apparent reason...

You sponsor a black kid £2, and they run out and buy a fucking trumpet! FFS!

Err .... The option to turn off "Vuvuzelas sound" would be more appropriate. :)

It is not as bad as the English commentators (and Alan Hansen :x ) droning on and on about 1966. At least the vuvuzela will only last for this World Cup :p

I've suffered decades of suffering the constant inescapable whine of wendy ball pundits droning on and on about the wonders of the last 90 minutes which produced precisely no goals when loads of great sport is happening all around. England in Australia - hello? I think they just won a match, so how about telling us what the score was?

Vuvuzelas? Irony? I'm fricking loving it!
