Belgium tries to be more annoying than the vuvuzela with "diabolica"

We're all still trying to forget the obnoxious sound of the vuvuzela, the plastic horn that rose to infamy during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. This year, as the soccer world turns its eyes on the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, a new noisemaker will take its place as the most annoying thing in the world.

And it's Belgian.

From The Star Online:
Fabio Lavalle, 26, and David dos Santos, 31, from the southern Belgian town of Mons, have invented a collapsible, pocket-sized trumpet, which, not unlike an air horn, produces a sound at around 98 decibels – equivalent to an electric hand drill.
 Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the diabolica: one less reason to follow the World Cup this year.
