He won’t have been the only chap to have admired Pippa Middleton’s shapely figure during the royal wedding.
But he may have been the only one foolish enough to make his appreciation quite so obvious to his partner.
And as this unfortunate driver now knows, hell hath no fury like a woman unfavourably compared with the royal maid of honour. The unknown man was caught on camera with ‘Is Pippa’s bum still better than mine?’ daubed across his Peugeot 206 in white paint.
Hell hath no fury like a bottom scorned! It is thought the unlucky driver of this blue Peugeot made the mistake of telling his better half of his admiration for Pippa Middleton's bottom
The graffiti-covered car was spotted in the Highgate area of Birmingham on Wednesday – much to the amusement of residents.
Builder Clark Butler, 39, from Digbeth, Birmingham, said: ‘It looks like this guy has made the number one mistake of being way too honest.
‘Everybody knows if your girlfriend asks you whether someone is more attractive than them, never say yes, even if it’s true.’
His colleague Derek Bushell, 50, added: ‘I can’t imagine he is too pleased about it.
‘It’s a slight overreaction because Pippa’s bum is better than most women’s. She just couldn’t handle the truth by the looks of things.’
Photographer Mathew Growcoot said: ‘It all happened so quickly because the driver wasn’t hanging around. He was shielding his face by the looks of it because everybody was pointing and laughing at him.’

A Facebook group, the Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society, now boasts 215,950 followers on the social network. By contrast, the most popular fan page with no explicit mention of her behind can only muster 160,598 followers.
But it is not men as much as women who are buzzing about Miss Middleton's bottom. Particularly the fashion pack, who are as besotted with her enviable figure as they are with her Alexander McQueen dress.
U.S. style blog Fashionista.com published an article entitled In Praise Of Pippa (Especially Her Bum), while fashion blogger Susie Bubble tweeted: 'It has to be said... I’m a tad jels over the pertness of Pip Middleton’s arse…'
Fashion editor and author Derek Blasberg also took to Twitter, writing: 'Unexpected #RoyalWedding facts: Pippa's bum was apparently the center piece of the nuptials.'

Miss Middleton is the Duchess of Cambridge's only sister. They have one younger brother, James, 23, who did the only reading at the wedding ceremony.
She was named Tatler magazine's number one society singleton in 2008, beating Prince William's cousin Princess Eugenie to the title.
She has since become something of a socialite and is known for her love of partying.
In a Daily Mail article earlier this year, writer Plum Sykes said of Miss Middleton: 'Pippa is the luckiest one of all. She gets all the right sort of attention from men, fashion designers, hostesses and things, and doesn’t have any of the duties.
'She’s become a Princess without the bad bits.'
