One of Britain's best-loved "red-top" daily newspapers did not have a story about David "Posh" Beckham or his lovely wife Victoria "Goldenballs" Adams in the current edition.
Said spokesman Rank Ordure, "Try as we might, we couldn't get a Beckham story in today's paper. Seems they had a quiet weekend locked away at home in LA and nothing happened, not even a photo opportunity. Normally we would make something up, probably involving Tom Cruise, but he was in England so even that was impossible."
Fleet Street insiders say that this unprecedented move must never be allowed in the future. Sun reader Brian Thick commented; "wos goin' on with the Sun these days?" David Beckham was unavailable for comment - a spokesman said the star was reading his autobiography.
