Confusing headline

September 29th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

The BBC News website had a link to a story with the headline Research widens height gene hunt.  It took a while for my poor old brain to drag any sense out of it.  Subconsciously I was isolating ‘gene hunt’ as the character from Life on Mars and being left with something widening height.  The whole thing was like a cryptic crossword clue and I had to give it a few tries with different emphasis before I hit on the meaning.

Maybe I am just missing the Times crossword.  After managing to finish it two days on the trot I didn’t see it at all today.
