In fact, I suspect that the first vuvuzelas were probably a batch of unsold carnival trumpets.

If it's the case, we're sorry.
They were a plague in the early years of MLS, back when they used to be called "plastic horns" and the only thing creating atmosphere at the games was little kids blowing on them while their soccer moms sat by disinterestedly. Then the South Africans discovered them, gave them an exotic name, and everyone started debating whether they were an annoyance or an expression of local culture.
