The vuvzela has a cycling link too! Quote from Wikipedia:
Well-known Kaizer Chiefs F.C. fan Freddie "Saddam" Maake claims to have invented the vuvuzela by adapting an aluminium version as early as 1965 from a bicycle horn after removing the black rubber to blow with his mouth. He later found it to be too short and joined a pipe to make it longer. Maake has photos of himself in the 1970s and 1980s at local South African games and international games in 1992 and 1996 and at the 1998 World Cup in France, holding the aluminium vuvuzela. He says the instrument was banned as authorities ruled it a dangerous weapon, which prompted him to find a plastic company that could manufacture it.
Lidl are now giving them away when you buy beer. So I bought some beer! Have hidden it, and will bring it out for a parp for tomorrow's England match, and make the kids (and dog) jump out of their skins!
