Some person who has never met David Beckham told someone else who has never met him who told some ladies that work on a magazine dedicated to famouses that apparently, he and the stick insect with no soul are considering adopting a poor people’s baby! That’s a real-life factoid! But there’s more…
He was said to have become so moved by the plight of African orphans on his recent trip to Sierra Leone that he started giving it some thought. (Can’t you just buy a fabulously retro 80s bolero jacket from Oxfam and be done with it like the rest of us?)
I for one am completely against the idea. Not because I think it’s culturally wrong. Not because I think it sends out the wrong message about adoption. But because no one should have to grow up with a bunch of thugs who look like they’ve just been sprung from C Wing for brothers.
