Everyone Hates the Vuvuzela

I can’t decide whether to thoughtfully consider this article or mock it.

The BBC is reporting about a new study showing that vuvuzelas greatly increase the number of respiratory droplets spread compared to regular old shouting. Authors of the study hypothesize this could increase the risk of respiratory illnesses such as tuberculosis. Given the prominence of vuvuzelas in TB-endemic areas, is there cause for concern?

I gotta be honest, I like the vuvuzela.
