vuvuzelas - South African noisemakers

Vuvuzelas – World Cup Noisemakers

Controversy
Meanwhile, controversy rages over the vuvuzelas… the world cup noisemaker blown in their many thousands at every match. Broadcasters all over the world (well, maybe not in South Africa) are being bombarded by irate viewers complaining that the irritating “angry bee” sound is ruining their enjoyment of the matches. Players too are complaining that they find it hard to concentrate… maybe that was the reason for England goalkeeper,  Rob Green’s fumble that allowed the USA to score!

Not everyone is unhappy though.

José Pecci, CEO of the Beauzelle-based AGM-TEC , the exclusive importer of vuvuzelas for France says the noisy trumpets are set to become top-decibel tools for trades unions planning to protest the government’s pension reform plans. He told leJDD.fr that for the past few days his firm had been receiving bulk orders for the trumpet from many French unions. “The unions have requested priority delivery. We’re selling thousands a day,” the happy CEO noted.
