Behold the caxirola

30 July 2013, 09:45

                     VUVUZELA  VS  THE  CAXIROLA

No matter how fast you can run or how deep you can hide from those bogies because they will always be there and on your tail.   When South Africa hosted the last soccer World cup, it was Larne to have and wave a Looney vuvuzela  and inflict permanent hearing loss and damage to other unsuspecting spectators.  That was the reason why SA never scored a try against Uruguay.  They were blown into a state of total confusion.  And so this much hated dingbat lost its charm and in my precinct it is blown by the neighbour kids on a Saturday afternoon in their back yards. Thank heavens I am 50% percent deaf and only hear about 50% of that mind-destroying cacophony.  One can now lean back and survey the sky with little fear of being lambasted by a vuvuzela.

No sir, not so fast, grab your seatbelts ‘cos the replacement for the new model vuvu is still in the pipeline and has been sanctioned for the next Soccer  World cup held and shaken in Brazil. This little job must be a high tech bit of work because it must be shaken to give any clout. According to the manufacturers it has a less grating, or should I say a less hating sound.  To make matters worse these new rattles will be handed out at the game venue and all so much that the nation will go deaf.  Somehow one thinks of a rattle snake in action.   This new rattle is locally referred to as “the caxirola” and that makes it sound like a new AUTOMOBILE model.  Apologies if this theme has been used in the past.
