Question: What happens to the vuvuzelas after the World Cup ends?

Image uploaded by Manuguf

In case you don’t know this already, vuvuzelas are those love-them-or-hate-them noisemakers that you hear in the background during broadcasts of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. My guess is that thousands have been sold, and that people who bought them solely for the sake of the event will eventually get bored of them. What happens then? Will they get pitched (har har) into the trash? Recycled? Sold as collector’s items? Or something else entirely?

If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas, or facts about vuvuzelas post-2010, please post them below.
