The Monday Mmm: David Beckham

By fulfilling all the criteria we require in a perfect footballer, David Beckham is the marker that all other players should be striving to reach.
Firstly, he’s generous. He takes his clothes off a lot. For fun and profit. He’s also thoughtful. By having beautiful kids he has ensured that we will be replete with leching material in twenty years time when he is arguably past his best. And yes. He is versatile; able to recover from even the most hideous of hair situs. (Getty Images/Daylife)
And finally, he’s so darn perfect he remains untainted by the whiff of skankocity that dogs his every step. (Or he has just has really good lawyers. Whatever).
Which is why we are taking this opportunity to pay homage to this image of loveliness that above all others sustains us through those darkest of times; when we’ve reached our credit limit and the bar has run out of vodka.
Dave? In honour of the fact that you scored (and stripped) and your LA Galaxy boys beat FC Dallas 2-1 to take the MLS Western Conference title, you’ve been Monday Mmm’d.
