It's funny that the dreaded vuvuzelas--those horrifyingly loud little horns causing that incessant buzz during World Cup games--have been compared to bees and/or locusts. Like those insects, one vuvuzela barely makes an impact. In swarms, however, they overwhelm populations.â†µ
Case in point: they've become so ubiquitous at World Cup games that fans have been forced to invest in earplugs. Small problem--as Darren Rovell reports, it seems there aren't enough earplugs to satisfy fans' needs.
At this point, the only thing keeping vuvuzelas from overwhelming the nation and causing full governmental collapse is the fact that they are inanimate and cannot procreate. Their parasitic hold on the unsuspecting human race, however, may make that fact irrelevant. So we're probably going to need a superhero or Robocop to defeat them. Banning them will only make them mad.â†µ
