So far, the retailer has sold more than 40,000 England-branded vuvuzelas, according to a spokeswoman. The plastic horns cost £2 (2.4 euros, 2.9 dollars) each.

"We had sold 40,0000 of the horns over the weekend," a company spokeswoman told AFP.

"Overall we originally had anticipated selling 75,000 by the end of the tournament we could possibly reach this target by the time England kick off again on Friday as the vuvuzelas have been so popular."

I was reading earlier today about the technology used to try and filter out the noise ... Create Digital Music has a good blog post about why it is so difficult ... Basically the horn things work on a similar frequency to voice so a simple 'notch filter' will affect the commentary adversely.

I have to say I am filtering it out over time and it is becoming the signature sound of the World Cup.

I still get more excitement from 20 mins of Origin footy than a whole match of WC ... Maybe I have just lost it

You're assimilating, you want to watch that I used to love watching football but definitely prefer Rugby now. Watching the Arg/Korea whitewash last night with the swarm of mozzies didn't inspire me greatly.
