back to article 'Great tits cope well with warming'

It's beers all round for the BBC this morning who've outregged El Reg leader writers with this deliciously suggestive offering: BBC headline: Great tits cope well with warming Of course, ornithology is a fertile area for schoolboy innuendo.

Urgh

Not too sure about the picture, though. Surely there must be a scientific name for the Great Tit, that the BBC could use (along the lines of the weird way that people nowadays pronounce the planet "yarranus")?

Schoolyboy innuendo?

Why limit it? I'm still giggling at great tits, sniggering at shags and having a discreet snurge at the blue legged booby.

Ah what a wonderful language we speak.

I don't get it

Perhaps someone will explain it to me when I'm older.

@ Ashley

I still pronounce it "your anus" and if anyone argues they get a clout with one of my physics degrees.

On the same lines, I also spent about 5 years referring to university as "school" to annoy arts students.

I had these two for the most read on the BBC site

1: Great tits cope well with warming

2: Europeans get drunk 'to have sex'

of course it doesnt beat the google ads i got on the reg with the three step plan

1: Photos of cute girls

2: Sex Offender Registry

3: Sex Offender Database

a natural progression presented by Google

Oooooh Missis.

Great title, although I would have thought with all the pictures of tits on the internet you might have come up with something errm 'else'.

I couldn't agree more, as the weather has got warmer I've seen loads of great tits eerrm .. mainly in the park... errmm ..

no matter how you read that its going to sound rude.

anyway what a fun way start to a friday. Top marks to you and the girls on the train this morning that had a tops (barely) on that left nothing to the imagination.

Doesn't this contravine...

the Extreme porn bill...I guess there's even innuendo in the use of the word "bill".

I'm right now writing a letter to my MP about the BBC dangerously flouting the law like this....

Paris...well...oh damn, I've just contraviened myself...

Presumably

blue tits don't cope well with the cold. How else could the headline have been phrased?

I said Egg! Bring back TMWRNJ!

In South Africa they have a bird called the Secretary Bird which has long legs and eats snakes. I've seen one, and they swallow!

Our wonderful language

According to that ever-useful source of information, Wikipedia, in the South West of England the Blue Tit is nick-named "Little Billy Biter". It's fortunate that I have a big billy.

Wind-fucker is an old country name for the kestrel, apparently. I always thought mouse-fucker would be more appropriate.

It makes a change...

...To see a BBC News Site headline that makes sense.

I wish they would employ journalists and editors that actually speak English.

Rant over, going back to sniggering now ...

Another BBC headline...

...that made me laugh - in reference to two government ministers:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7358335.stm

AFAIK the headlines used on the website are the same as the ones used on Ceefax so perhaps there's a character limit that occasionally throws these up by accident... but personally I suspect someone at the BBC is trying to sneak silly headlines past the editor.

BBC Devon...

...had one which read "Mass debate over mobile phone masts". Sadly it didn't stay there long.
