Second craziest headline ever?

Taken in conjunction with “Gordon Ramsay Sex Dwarf eaten by Badger” which Tara posted earlier today, it looks like the news has been getting pretty weird lately. But Tara and I have been discussing which of these two headlines are better. She still opts for the “Gordon Ramsay Sex Dwarf…”  strapline, while I still plump for this beauty from the BBC. I did some headline math, which looks like this:

Headline 1 (Ramsay dwarf) : sex/death/disability/celebrity/animal  

versus

Headline 2 (AIDS cats): implied gay sex/death/mutation/animals

So it would look like Headline 1 has it. BUT that does not take into account the “kittens” factor of headline 2 (which usually spells instant win), plus the fact that it is actually good news. I dunno, I’m torn…

What do you think, readers?
