Loud bug noises
I think there is a special place in hell for whoever invented the car horn that plays "La Cucaracha." There is absolutely no reason for a horn to be that loud and obnoxious. Not to mention, it does a really poor job of accomplishing what horns are really for: emphasizing to other drivers, in addition to the bird you flip them, what major assholes they are. If someone hears "La Cucaracha" after cutting you off, it's going to make her laugh at you, and rightly so. Not only are you so slow that you made another driver impatient enough to cut you off, you're stupid enough to buy that inane melody for your car.
In particular, I despise whoever decided to sell and install that irritating horn in the car of the construction worker who works on the building next to my apartment, beginning at 7 AM every day. Nothing like waking up to "La Cucaracha" and power drills bright and early after spending the better part of the previous night drinking.
If I found a way to break the horn, that wouldn't count as vandalism, right? I mean, for something to be vandalism, it has to cause damage -- and *anything* has to be better than that stupid song.
