So I was in the Gym this morning, totally wailing on my glutes and pecs, and the building manager and doorman came in to catch a little bit of whatever fast-kicking, low-scoring tie was going down. But their conversation didn't focus on the merits of Slovenia's backfield (or was it Slovakia?) versus New Zealand. No: the discussion was dominated by their shared hatred of the ridiculous vuvuzela, the cursed horns that turn every match into a veritable hornet's nest of annoyance.
I would have joined the chat, but I had a few more reps to go. Instead, I have decided to see how wide-spread are these feelings of vuvuzela-revulsion. And what better way to figure that out, than through the powers of THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON's obviously global readership. Behold: a scientific survey:
Are vuvuzelas totally, absolutely ruining the World Cup? (not to say the World Cup wouldn't be a fast-kicking, low-scoring and tied carnival-of-lame without them, of course.)
Yes. The buzzing won't stop! (65 votes)
No. I enjoy migrane headaches with my fast kicking, low scoring and ties. (42 votes)
Seriously? Another World Cup post from this site's worst blogger? (Oh, and the horns are great.) (49 votes)
