JOHANNESBURG (AP):

The vuvuzela, the source of that never-ending, ear-splitting drone at World Cup stadiums in South Africa, has sparked rabid passion: Either you love it, or you hate the very ground of the person who invented it.

From as far away as the Himalayan mountain kingdom of Bhutan, Associated Press readers have emailed in droves to complain that they are being driven crazy by the din of the trumpets.

"Fifteen minutes into the opening game and I already took two aspirin ... ," lamented Boaz Gabbai, from West Hills, California.

"Those vuvuzelas are making me nuts!!!" wrote Myriam Seyfarth from Venezuela.

And, said Gillian McKenna in Bordeaux, France: "PLEASE start a worldwide movement to get the vuvuzela banned."
