What is a vuvuzela, anyway?

What sort of horn is the vuvuzela? I know it's plastic, you blow it, and it makes noise a buzzing noise. According to reports, it's loud, and buzzes at a characteristic frequency.

But I'm missing some construction details.

According to Wikipedia, the sport vuvuzela was invented by someone who took the bulb off of a bike horn, and then extended the horn to make it longer. Bike horns have a reed to make their sound. Does the vuvuzela?

No reed - according to the the wikipedia article, it is a blowing horn, where the sound is produced from the vibration of the lips as air is blown through them.
