Guess we should have seen this one coming...

Insurance saleswoman Yvonne Mayer, 29, was unable to speak or eat for two days after ripping her windpipe when she blew the three foot horn during a street party in Cape Town. The next day shocked doctors diagnosed her with a ruptured throat and ordered her to rest it completely to allow it to heal. The bizarre injury is the first known vuvuzela-related accident since the World Cup kicked off last week.

Yvonne, from Cape Town, said: ‘I had never blown a vuvuzela before but was given one at work and was going to watch the first South Africa match so thought I’d take it along. I was walking towards the Fan Park in Cape Town and blowing it as hard as I could when suddenly my throat started to hurt. At first I thought I’d gone down with a bug but the next day it was worse. When I went to the doctor he took a look and then laughed. He said I’d ruptured my throat by blowing too hard, and that perhaps I had been doing it all wrong. LINK

Ok, you can’t make this stuff up. Those stupid horns are annoying as hell. It sounds like a swarm of bees while you are trying to watch the game. Besides there’s the obvious hilarity of this article… discuss. Nap time.
