via guardian.co.ukWhy is everyone so obsessed with David Beckham's beard? According to The Observer, it's "like an unstoppable hairy fungus" which is "colonising" him. I'm not denying that Mr Beckham has consciously decided to embrace his facial hair as some kind of fashion statement, but does it really warrant such debate?
If indeed it does, then let's start to discuss what his World Cup style niche will be next year. Red contact lenses? A blue nose? Fangs? Perhaps he's growing the beard now in preparation, in order to have a big dreadlock hanging from his chin. Personally, I'm going to put money on him getting a tattooed moustache.
