A friend in London reports that the infernal horn has found its way to British supermarkets, where it’s selling like the proverbial hotcakes at two pounds a pop. This raises the dreadful possibility that the vuvuzela will become South Africa’s export to the rest of the soccer world. That’s what happened to the Mexican wave, remember?

If FIFA doesn’t have the spine to ban the wretched things from the World Cup stadia, here’s hoping the English Premier League (and other national soccer federations) will stamp out the menace before it takes over the terraces.
