Get your prosthetic limb signed by Beckham!

Here's the disability photo story of the week: David Beckham handling prosthetic limbs as he and other big name England players meet service personnel who were injured while fighting in Afghanistan.

In the pics we see Britain's most famous footballer holding a prosthetic arm after a soldier has removed it, then shaking hands with the same serviceman once he's got his arm back on (with Becks presumably saying to himself, "Look! It doesn't come off if I pull on it! Amazing!"). There are also shots of him and England captain John Terry autographing more legs and arms than, well, I've seen on my regular visits to the prosthetic limb clinic.

It's given me an idea, too. If I could get David Beckham to sign my prosthetic leg, how much could I get it for on eBay? Erm, not that I would ever sell it, of course ...
