The Law of Vuvuzela

Godwin's Law states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1." The most important corollary of Godwin's Law is that the person who first makes the Nazi/Hitler comparison automatically loses the argument, and the discussion is over.

We propose the Law of Vuvuzela: "The longer a noise-based Internet meme goes on, the probability of a video showing professional musicians playing classical music with that noise approaches 1." First Corollary: "When this occurs, the meme is dead."

I think we're done here.
