Vuvuzela Buzz Dominates World Cup
If you've caught any World Cup action since soccer's big dance kicked off Friday, you've heard the noise ... that interminable low drone emanating from the stadiums and speakers. BZZZ. BZZZZ!! It's the vuvuzela, South Africa's (and the Internet's) favorite stadium instrument, and some soccer fans' least favorite thing ever.

The sound of the plastic horns has been likened to tireless bees buzzing from the first whistle to the last -- 90 minutes, all told. The din has sparked ire and annoyance, with 545 complaints lodged with the BBC thus far.

Still, after some brief talk of FIFA banning vuvuzelas from stadiums, the final word is they aren't going anywhere. "I have always said that Africa has a different rhythm, a different sound," tweeted FIFA president Sepp Blatter. "I don't see banning the music traditions of fans in their own country." Read on for all the buzz -- and missives from the vuvuzela Twitter account.
