Becks' sick stunt

The world's gone vomit mad! After England captain David Beckham scored and then barfed in the team's 1-0 victory over Ecuador in the World Cup yesterday, it's all that's been coming out of people's mouths.

Following the goal / hurl, commentator John Motson pointed out that this was not the first time Becks has yakked after scoring. "I'm glad you brought that up John," replied fellow commentator Mark Lawrenson.

The tabloids came up with some good ones. "Becks beauty makes 'em sick", said The Star and "Here we throw", The Mirror. The Sun topped them both easily with "Queasy does it". But The Mirror's website smashed the competition with "The Spewtiful game". Well done them. Meanwhile, even the Big Brother house got in on the act, with housemates being woken by a recording of Glyn vomiting on his bedclothes.

What does Beckham have to say about all this? "It just came out."

It's true. Which reminds me, one more from The Sun: "You're only sick when you're winning".

Maybe he had a little snack before the game and he's on the same diet plan as his wife.

"With his set pieces, the sky's the vomit"

or a Kierkegaard pun:

"The sickness unto the quarter-finals"

"can I sick it?"
