Fancy a loud cackle over your tea and cornflakes? – Look no further than acidic-tongued Morrissey who has decided to gift the world with a few gems about David and Victoria Beckham, whom he’s renamed ‘The Peckhams’ and hilariously says should be ‘taken to the edge of the village and flogged’.
The singer tells Loaded: ‘I’d… have the Peckhams (Beckhams) dragged to the edge of the village and flogged because they are insufferable to anyone of intelligence, and they actively chase the paparazzi.’
The 53-year old’s been reading the weekly gossip mags because he’s eager to warn Britain that Posh ‘n’ Becks are now living amongst them and worse- the former England skipper will soon be given a Knighthood:
‘We don’t seem to realise that David and Victoria Peckham will soon be back and god forbid they will be bestowed with titles Sir and Lady Peckham, this is what’s wrong with this country, we don’t seem to care.’
But what particularly aggravates him is Dave’s lack of knowledge about random musical instruments:
‘Football often seems to me to have no meaning whatsoever other than just to be there. It can’t be elevated any higher because so many footballers are paid £200,000 a week, yet couldn’t identify a harp.’
As much as I’ve been giggling about what he says, I think flogging the Peckhams might be a step too far. However, Morrissey’s right about one thing; David will be getting a Knighthood before we know it.
Oh and this just in from Peckingham Palace:
