S Africans: Hopes low; horns annoying

By Liz Clarke

South Africans' spirits were palpably down following Bafana Bafana's 3-0 shutout at the hands of Uruguay Wednesday. The Sowetan captured the mood with an online poll. The results:

Do you think Bafana still stand a chance of making it to the next rounds?
Yes, we can't give up yet 40%
No, there's no hope 60%

Also Thursday, Johannesburg's Times took the pulse of readers on the hot-button issue of noise, posing its query as follows:

What's the most annoying sound in the world?:
Vuvuzelas 76 %
Complaints about vuvuzelas 14 %
Politicians speaking 8%
Alarms going off 2%

That poll result is obviously BS, as we have been assured that vuvuzelas are an integral and long-standing part of South Africa culture. That would be akin to 3/4 of Americans rejecting apple pie.

Vuvuzelas or C-SPAN? I'll take the horns.

Depends whether it's C-SPAN 1, 2, 3 or Ocho.
