PoshnBecks: The Twilight Years

David Beckham, it seems, is to spend more time with his haircut. Real Madrid don't seem to want him any more and neither does the worst football team in the world. This is, of course, not too serious as football has not, for some time, been his primary career. He is far more famous - and probably earns more - as one half of the celebrity entity PoshnBecks. Nothing he does or doesn't do on the field is likely to affect that in the immediate future. In fact, I would guess PnB will become even more famous as he declines as a footballer and she loses her looks - extreme emaciation does not look good after the age of 25. (For further evidence of this go and see the film Bobby. Heather Graham, Helen Hunt, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone don't just look bad, they look awful.) PoshnBecks: The Twilight Years will be as good a story as The Golden Couple. I see it as an essentially cosy decline. They will soon appear on Ready, Steady, Cook and, in about thirty years, they will be co-presenters of The Antiques Roadshow. As ever, you read it here first.
PS. In fact, it occurs to me that they would be the perfect successors to Carol Vorderman and Des Lynam on Countdown.

  1. And forgot to mention how much I liked this phrase from the Real coach Fabio Capello - 'suffering for the shirt.' We have all been there.

  2. How many words was that, Bryan? At least you abbreviated the brand to PnB somewhere in the middle. Save more words in future. The EU should introduce some kind of maximum quota system for journalists so that they can't squander column inches on celebrities who are less interesting than a turnip.

  3. I'm being a stuffed shirt. It's just that pair. Her stupid face in particular sets off something in me.

  4. Extreme emaciation is just the thing for ladies who live in Los Angeles which is where, if the Beeb reports correctly, the Beckhams are heading. I love a happy ending.

  5. I once had the hots for her but when I saw the price she put on herself, the eyes turned elsewhere. And to think I was going to long distance post a marriage proposal to her. What a lucky escape.
