As if the annoyances both minor (tornado warnings, earthquakes, blackouts and a heat wave) and major (riots and police chiefs with Stasi fantasies) weren’t enough. Now Accordion City faces a new threat: guys selling vuvuzelas, the latest in a long line of scary products from South Africa (including apartheid, District 9 and Johnny Clegg).

These guys were hawking their wares at the corner of Yonge and Dundas. Don’t encourage them by buying one.

Haha, we used to have them as kids back when the World Cup was in Mexico in 1986. Much fun was had!

“New” threat? You could buy these things at any Leafs, Argos or Blue Jays games for the past 30 years…
