There is no z in Vuvuzela

The vuvuzelas have sounded like a swarm of bees all morning here. All night they sounded more like the tractor-scaring scene from Cars. For those of you without small children or an in-built drive to watch anything Pixar studios produces, that’s a couple of cars honking their horns in the midst of a field of flatulent cattle. Honk-honk … blaaaat. It was sporadic-continuous with gaps for rain and between about 2am and 5am. It may continue for a long, long, long time. The soccer world cup, apparently, is here. Not actually in this city, you understand, but near enough to warrant blowing a plastic trumpet for 24 hours straight.
