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
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?
