I like to think of myself as a cultured, well-informed and well-travelled individual, but there are some things that I haven't seen that I'm pretty sure would blow my mind. I don't have a bucket list, so to speak, but getting to sample a turducken (that's a chicken stuffed inside a duck, which is then stuffed inside a turkey) or seeing the canals of Venice would rank right up there with spotting David Beckham inside a McDonald's.
It just seems wrong. As a former athlete with the looks and physique of a model, I wouldn't think David Beckham would be caught dead in a McDonald's. A single Chicken McNugget looks as if it would probably cause a 100 percent increase in his overall body fat, while a super-sized Big Mac meal could very easily kill him.
At a drive-thru in the British city of Bath, however, the ex-soccer player was spotted taking his order, and the manager at this very lucky McDonald's franchise revealed exactly what Becks ordered that fateful day.
Out in the Bath town of Chippenham last Friday, David Beckham joined the line at a drive-thru in McDonald's, with the nonchalant grace he normally reserves for the soccer field or a black-tie event. Philip Moulton, who manages this particular branch, was starstruck, insisting on a selfie with the 42-year-old before posting it to social media.
There it is. Irrefutable proof that David Beckham has visited a McDonald's. I'm one step closer to completing my bucket list, and soon, I will be able to die a happy man.
In that selfie with Philip Moulton, you can see that Becks is very much alone, so there's no chance he's buying it for one of his four kids, or his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. No. David Beckham ordered something from McDonald's, and David Beckham ate it in his car, just like any of us normals would do.
The comments on Philip's once-in-a-lifetime Facebook post were similarly awestruck, with one commenter saying: "wow well done lucky you... something you will remember for the rest of your life", while another said: "no f***ing way!".
Another brave soul, however, posed the question that was on everybody's minds: what exactly did David Beckham order?
Wow. That's... that's actually a lot of food to be eating in one sitting, especially when he's able to keep in such good shape. That's probably too much for me. Kudos, David. I severely underestimated you.
On the other hand, David Beckham may have been looking for a quick energy boost before he headed to Glastonbury this weekend; he was in Pilton to officially open a set of affordable housing in Glastonbury on his way to the festival, alongside Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis. Becks even helped to plant a tree at the nearby Maggie's Farm, but I doubt that it would have sapped him of his energy to the point he had to go to McDonald's.
