The Case Of The $1.8 Million Diamond-Studded Dildo

Supposedly David Beckham bought one for wife Posh Spice.

They deny it.

It appears to not be true.

...a quick NEXIS search brings up a lot of stories citing a man who was selling $1.8 million diamond-encrusted vibrators speculating that Beckham was thinking about buying one.

Patterico and Kaus both strain mightily to make some or other point about the inaccuracy and tabloidization of the LAT. Fine, let them play their games.

I think the actual news here is that there's such a thing as a $1.8 million diamond-encrusted vibrator.

Now that's a colorful and far-ranging sex life.

Now This Is A Genuine Media Lie: The egregiously misnamed Seattle Post-Intelligencer declares in a headline and opening sentence:

Beckhamania reaches States

By Pat Martin, Soccer Editor

Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Beckhamania is officially here.

Oh, yeah, baby. It's just like when the Beatles played on Ed Sullivan.

I'm so excited I can barely contain myself from sticking a celebratory shotgun in my mouth and giving the back of my brain a 12-gauge whoo-hoo!


The "Becks" Epoch Begins

You're finally freed from that gray, Beckhamless prison of your own design. Suck in that sweet, sweet Becks-scented air, for the first time a free man, and look anew upon the world Becks has created for you.
