Vuvuzelas leave lips bruised
Johannesburg - Many soccer fans complained of bruised lips from their continuous vuvuzela blowing on Friday.
Estate agent Jonathan Adams said his lips were dry and sore. "I'm enjoying this, but look at my lips. They're dry and bruised. Too much blowing the vuvuzela."
Medical student Mohamed Yusuf's lips were also sore. "But the atmosphere is so awesome here, I can't stop," he said.
"I learnt my lesson from a friendly last week. I went easy on the vuvuzela," said Pretoria auditor Minesh Kwarika.
Twenty-year-old student, Shamir Rampersadh said: "My lips were swollen the last time. This time I took it easy, but I admire the people who blow the vuvuzelas. It takes a lot out of you."
Said Ronald Smit: "It is bad for the lips. Sore, but good."
Almost every fan at the Sandton park was blowing a vuvuzela.
