Q: What’s more annoying than an oil spill?


A: Vuvuzelas on your brain all day.

Tony Heyward may want his life back, and the Gulf Coast might want its ecosystem back, and I want my babyback ribs. So what’s the solution? Britons who no longer have a World Cup team to blow vuvuzelas at have come up with a creative solution to the lack of soccer noise and oil spill-plugging that involves an impish form of civil disobedience:

BP is not feeling the pain they are causing in the Gulf. BP is spending millions on PR. In order to put a bit of public pressure on them, we plan to buy 100 vuvuzelas and hire 100 vuvuzela players off Craigslist to play in front of BP’s International Headquarters in London for an entire work day. Ideally, the players will keep coming back every day until they fix the gusher.

And they’re going to donate some coin to Gulf relief.  Heck yes. I really hope this happens. Let’s turn up the heat volume, eh? Donate here if you’re interested:
