A meeting of minds, as Gordon meets up with Victoria Beckham.
Posh observes that (at least in her mind) she's popular with gays:
Oddly, this is her response to a fawning opening gambit from Gordon. So Smart told Beckham how much he liked her, and Beckham replied "only gay men like me, ooh, I could pick out a gay at five hundred yards, I could." It seems to have flown over Smart's head, though.
Indeed, it flew over by quite a distance, as Gordo headlines his scoop:
Now, Gordon, let's go through this again, shall we? Gay men. Woman. Do you think that headline might have a bit of a flaw built into it?
But then Gordon does managed to get himself even more knotted. Having thought he heard Victoria say that she was only sexually attractive to men, he remembered she was married to a man:
Is Gordon suggesting that he thinks that David Beckham is kinda gay?
Is Gordon really sitting in 2008, confusing wearing make-up and body waxing with sexuality?
As if suddenly becoming aware of what he was saying, Gordon pulls back:
Is Gordon really unaware that many gay men are fathers? And is he suggesting that only parenthood is a sign of heterosexuality? And did he really sit down thinking about his 'is Becks gay' fantasy before thinking 'nah, hang on - he's got kids, hasn't he?'
Never has the phrase 'Gordon Smart's Bizarre' been apt.
Gordon, Gordon, you seem to have spent an awful lot of time dreaming about the possibility of David Beckham being gay. You'd better re-establish your blokey credentials quick. Have you got something to say about the new shots from the James Bond set?:
So you're told.
Quick, Gordon, get some tits onto your page.
That's the Gordon we know.
The picture is a still from a new movie:
Eating boys, eh, Gordon? Can you imagine such a thing?
