>The blasted Vuvuzela trumpet thingies! (Looking like this: http://imadivaprincess.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/vuvuzela.jpg )
They hand them out here thanks to the football WM in South Afrika. All day people walked my street honking and squeaking, because they did not master the things. Now, even now, at night, people are out and “playing” making it alternately sound as if a big ferry is about to land in the parking lot before your house or as if a horde of angry Mammoths is stampeding through the streets around you.
And indeed, they are LOUD!
