Random Topics - Vuvuzela

The vuvuzela (sometimes called a "lepatata", its Setswana name) or a stadium horn, is a blowing horn approximately 1 m in length. It is commonly blown by fans at football matches in South Africa. The instrument requires some lip and lung strength to blow and emits a loud monotone B Flat. The sound level of the instrument has been measured at 127 decibels contributing to matches with dangerously high sound pressure levels for unprotected ears. Commentators have compared the sound "a stampede of noisy elephants," "a deafening swarm of locusts," "a giant hive full of very angry bees."

1 If soccer fans only blew vuvuzelas after every score, the stadium would be silent at least 95% of the games! LOL -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 1, 2010, 7:15 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It's not just the noise / nuisance factor ... the name sounds like it should refer to a female body part! If I didn't know any different and heard a guy saying he got a vuvuzela, I'd be inclined to ask if it was the result of surgery or a purchase from an "adult" gift shop. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 1, 2010, 6:34 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Speaking of Vuvuzelas, while I was watching the World Series, I thought I saw somebody holding one (although I could be wrong). Anyway, I agree with Mythigator. I can understand why someone would blow them when someone scores, but why blow them the ENTIRE game? -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 1, 2010, 6:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 If I was in charge of the world I would make possession of a vuvuzela a capital offense. That's the kind of crime one gets the death penalty for, right? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 6:45 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I can understand blowing them to celebrate a goal (hell, yes, OF COURSE blow the horns for a goal!) and when someone on the team does something spectacular. I see similar horns all the time at major junior hockey games. Blowing them at those times (for a goal, or in hockey, for a big hit or a fight) makes perfect sense, and when they're used that way, I don't mind them much. (Also, coming from a fanbase that rings cowbells at games, I'm not in any position to get overly critical about the noise.) But what's the deal with blowing them for the ENTIRE game? That's what doesn't make any sense, and that's the point at which they might as well make the things out of fish bones. If a swarm of bees were to enter the stadium, the people blowing the horns would be the LAST to know about it! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 26, 2010, 7:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I go to Hershey Bears games, and for years before this years World Cup, the Bears sold horns that were very much like Vuvuzelas. Im half afraid of what will happen at games this year. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 26, 2010, 4:17 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The vuvuzela was just a speck in the passing fad that is the FIFA World Cup... then it was exported overseas. Well, it was nice having eardrums. I shall miss them dearly. -- Submitted By: (doctorwhorox) on June 25, 2010, 7:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Murphy's law comes to mind. Speaking of which, Youtube now has a soccer ball icon on videos. Click on it, and you can listen to vuvuzelas blaring as you watch the video. O_o -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 25, 2010, 7:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The most boring sport in the world coupled with the most annoying sound in the world. What could possibly go wrong? -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on June 24, 2010, 10:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
