What's The Answer To Annoying World Cup Drone?
Published : 14 Jun 2010 13:34:51
We've had our say on here ... that annoying vuvuzela drone is driving us so loop-the-f***ing-loop we've decided to play "Coming Home Newcastle" while the World Cup games are on. So what can we do about it? Do we need to do ANYTHING about it? Our messageboard informs us there is a Facebook campaign - "FIFA-BAN-THE-ANNOYING-VUVUZELA" - as though that is going to do something about it. Comments range from: "I have to say, it hasn't bothered me in the slightest, its just background noise for me" to "They're almost as annoying as the ITV commentators." Others ... "If you dont like it you tool turn youre volume down." "Why dont you do something usefull like start a ban on the f***ing bag pipes." "Just a thought but have any of these f***ing face book campaigns ever actually achieved anything? They did get behind Gail Platt on corrie with her courtcase mind." "I can imagine Blatter and Platini taking it seriously if they were presented with a facebook petition. Ha."
