Well, at least one of them makes me smile. The other one, it makes me wonder about the people they have writing this stuff for the BBC News website.
Headline #1: “Hero in underpants tackles a ‘roo”
Oh, come on, you have to smile at that! Maybe even chuckle out loud…
Headline #2: “Oily fish dementia boosts queried”
Now that one simply boggles the mind. I have this image of some halucinating lounge-fish… cheering for people who’ve been interrogated, perhaps?
Turns out the article is about a new study which calls into question previous claims that the consumption of types of fish which are high in oils containing omega-3 fatty acids leads to an improvement in cognitive function. So the headline writer has distilled that down to “oily fish” (which on its own is reasonably straightforward, I suppose) and the claims that they are supposed to provide “dementia boosts” (OK, that actually sounds a bit opposite of what it’s supposed to mean — it reads to me like it increases dementia…) are being “queried” (called into question…)
Probably written by an escapee from a British tabloid newspaper…
