China is in love with a prophylactic bearing David Beckham's name:
A brand of condoms named after football ace David Beckham has taken the Chinese contraceptive market under its sway. Although the Beckham contraceptive is not being endorsed by the former England captain himself, its makers claim that the users will score in the bedroom like David does on the pitch. This brand now sells more than any other brand in the country.
I'm sure Becks is very proud to have his name associated with the best-selling condom in the most populous country in the world. So, the Chinese are using condoms now? I thought they just buried baby girls after they were born. Anyway, I wonder if Becks' raincoat will conquer Africa as well. "Bend It Like Beckham" could come to have a whole new meaning. -KD
