I apologise to those of you with sensitive dispositions, but I'd recommend you have a quick look at this before someone at the BBC realises what they've done and takes it down.

It's a good thing I didn't have anything in my mouth when I clicked the link, 'cause I really, really would've lost it. {{{{hutch0}}}}}, you've made my whole week!
Hysterical hugs,

Well It made the emailed BBC News under the Science/Nature section this morning, so they didn't take it down. :)

And I suspect the reason it remains the most-emailed news story on the site more than twenty-four hours later has more to do with the headline than the story itself. I showed it to someone at work today and all he had to say was, "Well, I've always found that..."

Oh yeah, warming is NICE...

I agree with jmward14 that this is definitely spew worthy. I am shocked that they have left it up.

On the other hand, it is a perfectly innocuous headline about Great Tits and Global Warming, and it's only our filthy minds that make it dirty. I love the BBC - they must have had so many comments about this one and they haven't taken it down yet, bless 'em.

Presumably Blue Tits prefer the cold...

Hm. Does this new medication mean you're going to be making jokes like that all the time?

I was making jokes like that long before the new meds :P

I blame the likes of Frankie Howerd and the Carry On movies for corrupting my innocent mind.

Or in the case of Carry On Doctor, Frankie Howerd in a Carry On movie. I guess if you're going to be corrupted, you might as well be corrupted by the best.
