Infernal din

Oh dear. World Cup 2010: South Africa ponders vuvuzela ban:

The constant sound of the high-pitched horn-like instrument has so far drowned out much of the atmosphere-generating singing usually associated with games.


France captain Patrice Evra has already blamed the noise generated by the vuvuzelas, which has been likened to the drone of thousands of bees, for his side's poor showing in their opening group game against Uruguay, which finished goalless.

He said: "We can't sleep at night because of the vuvuzelas. People start playing them from 6am.

"We can't hear one another out on the pitch because of them."

No prizes for guessing where I am on the likey-the-vuvuzela's-dulcet-tones spectrum.
