1. They were tremendously popular at the 2010 World Cup

Not so much any others.

2. I keep mine beside the bed.

No reason. Just where it ended up. Next to the bed between bed and side table. I dust it when cleaning and put it back. Maybe one day I'll need to annoy the neighborhood.

We've already run through the entire gamut of sex jokes about the vuvuzela being next to the bed. Either made them ourselves or heard'em from guests who noticed it sitting there. Usually the same ones who move things around in my medicine cabinet.

Always keep something weird in your medicine cabinet. See which of your guests are bold enough to broach the topic or those who simply give you funny looks.

Remember: Guests, like fish, go bad after three days - but the joy you derive from fucking with bad guests will provide you with fond memories filled with giggles of delight.

12. my nephew worked in the obama white house.

i was on the outs w the family at the time, so i was the one who didnt get the special west wing tour. all the other sibs did. brother managed 2.

turns out the bathroom in the west wing that guests get to use is the president's bathroom.
my brother had a pet project about veterans, about college credit for military service. worked really hard on it.
well, he sees his big chance, since this is his second visit, and leaves a note for obama in the medicine chest.

yeah, got a visit from the secret service.
good thing my nephew was high up enough to explain his crazy uncle.

got a the message through, tho.
still not the law, except in cali, but...

5. So, inclredibly, there are *THREE* of us in this thread, so far!1 I keep mine on a side table in the

living room. Only blew it a few times, have poor lung capacity. I also have the next World Cup's gadget from Brazil, the (caricelas? - the rattle noisemakers).


ON EDIT: It's named/spelled: caxirola. Thanks again, Google!1

6. Oh, please

spare your spouse and the neighbors! I remember when the soccer matches were held in South Africa, and whenever my friends and I would stop into a bar for a quick beer after work, there was the annoying sound of those things everywhere.

8. I don't remember tambourines

but then, I don't watch soccer, the vuvuzela noise was inflicted on me because I went to places near work in NJ where there was great interest in it. About five years ago, I started going to a place that featured quiet sports, like golf and baseball.

10. It's easily covered up

by the din of bar noise. Vuvuzelas? Not so much.

11. I remember that for a while there was a soccer ball button on YouTube videos...

...and if you clicked it, it would add the dulcet tones of the vuvuzela to whatever video you were watching.

Good times.
