    I just published a hub about the 'Vuvuzela' and as a result of typing it about 50 times it is now my current favourite . . .

    What is your favourite word?

      The vuvuzela -my son has just downloaded that sound on his Ipod touch....the sound is very annoying after a few minutes, but the word itself is great !

            England will not loose! Its that kind of negativity that caused Rooney to spit the dummy out on Friday lol.

              They might not lose, but they have to win, not draw don't they? They haven't been doing much winning so far!

    Those things are driving everyone nuts. Still - the French are out, so I get to make fun of all my French friends - unless England goes the same way. sad

    Current favorite word: Vagitarian. Work it out. big_smile

      Ha! Yeah the French are long gone! I cannot believe that the captain put their lack of success down to a cheap plastic horn, tut.

        They were on strike. The coach sent one of the players home for arguing with him - then the rest of the team refused to train.

        This is sooooo French it is not even funny. And now the entire country is sulking and complaining about the bloody Vuvuzelas. lol

          I didn’t realise, they go on strike when their whole nation is relying on their success?

          Very professional and not at all childish . . . big_smile

    I love the word Vuvuzela too after writing a ten minute hub on it and selling quite a few of the noise-makers. I have noticed that after typing a keyword tons of times it just stops being a word, looks like a bunch of letters, and I'm really over analysing it, thinking 'surely it'snot spelled like that'. The word currently making my brain spin is stylus.

    it's a special effect, when you're in a dream state or high, crazy images float by or morph one into another.  Now you know what I do in my spare time big_smile

    I just read in the newspapers that 90% of vuvuzela was made in China!!  Apparently the Chinese were not successful marketing them during the previous World Cup.

    One of the factories was producing 250,000 everyday from January to April for export alone.  Right now they are still producing 25000 each day!!  And an added bonus, the Chinese themselves are blowing their heads off right now, not literally!

    Now they are blowing vuvuzela all the way to the banks!!

    My current favorite word is not the word "Vuvuzela", but the sound it makes: "BRRRRRRRZZZZZZZZ"!

    My favorite word is mellifluous. Just wrote a hub about it. It's been a favorite for awhile. Can't even remember where I first glimpsed at it.
