David Beckham: not liked by Norwich schoolchildren

It's been a while since I had the chance to skewer Beckham, but it appears that his time might finally be up -- thanks to the children and toddlers of Norwich.

As more and more schoolchildren aspire to being megastars and massive celebrities, the kids of Norwich have their eyes on more practical professions like builder, fireman and steelworker.

Way to go, Norwich.

According to the Norwich Evening news, children they talked to idolized few celebrities, and the ones they did look up to included Hilary Duff and Frank fucking Lampard. [wrap your head around that one].

In addition, they wanted to take on everyday jobs, shunning the vacuous pursuits popularized by Beckham and his ugly robot wife.

However, they know that it's not all easy work, like the potential problems of being a scientist.Said seven-year-old Keira Poulton:

“If you were a scientist, you could make a potion that could accidently poison someone which would be very bad.”
Much like watching Spurs games every week.

I realize this story has a rather tenuous link to football, but at the end of the day, it's good to know that not every child is chasing the vainglory of the David Beckham or Ronaldinho lifestyle.

So, Mr. Beckham, I implore you: become a builder now. It's the only way for you to salvage any self-respect.
