David Beckham Joins Queue To Pay Respects To Bród


AS IRELAND’s recently announced 9-month period of official mourning begins following the passing of beloved presidential dog Bród, former England footballer David Beckham has been pictured queuing for 13 hours in order to pay his respects.

Just one of a number of high profile individuals in the queue which stretches from Dun Laoghaire to Phoenix Park, Beckham made it to Áras an Uachtaráin in time to witness a 21-tennis ball salute carried out by the Irish army this morning as part of official services.

“This will help me get an Irish knighthood, right?” a clearly moved Beckham remarked.

As per his wishes Bród will be buried with his favourite stick and a year’s supply of treats while Misneach will serve as an official paw-bearer during the 8-hour funeral broadcast across the world to an estimated audience of 2 billion.

Replacing the Papal Cross with a 50ft statue of Bród is already underway.

Bród’s will is set to be contested by the dozens of puppies he fathered along with their mothers, all looking for a share of his vast squeaky toy collection.

Bertie Ahern has refused to confirm or deny his intention to put his hat in the ring for position of next presidential dog.

Elsewhere, local woman Michelle Bow has been commended for her bravery after making it all the way to 9.01am today in the office before breaking down in tears again over Bród’s passing.
