We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: if you’re dumb, you better be cute.
Or in this instance, if have trouble with your native language, don’t try to tackle one of those nasty foreign ones.
Case in point, hottest of the hotties: David Beckham.
When asked by a group of Spanish journalists (in Spanish) whether he and Victoria were expecting another child, he said, “yes”. Cue worldwide media pandemonium.
The Sun, UK breaks it down in English:
A journalist asked him: “Congratulations. Is it true that you’re going to be a father?“
Beckham smiled broadly and replied “Yes.“
The journalist asked: “Are you happy?“
Journalist: “How are you?“
Becks: “Very well.“
And Victoria? “Good, thanks.“
But when asked “Would you prefer a boy or a girl?“, the star just smiled.
His spokeswoman admitted: “He misunderstood a question in Spanish.“

Until October 30, we’ll make due with the advance blurbs:
“I was never the six-foot tall pin-up. I’ve always been the girl next door who got lucky.”
Have truer words ever been spoken?
“I’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but this book isn’t my attempt to tell you what or what not to do. It’s just to share some of what I’ve learned.”
“I’ve always been a girls’ girl. And I know from experience that making the very best of yourself is something any woman can do.”
Just how did Victoria Beckham go from “flat ass” to “bootylicious”?
Hmmm, how indeed.
The tabloids are claiming is down to some expert photo editing to give her some curves and make the rear view in her new perfume ad with David more appealing.
UK newspaper the Daily Mail has quotes from a digital re-touch expert, who is in little doubt that there have been some enhancements made to the photos.
Expert or no expert, Victoria is rocking a whole lotta junk in the trunk that she certainly didn’t have a month, nay, a week ago.
