Headline writers "complete morons"

How dumb are some people? Jon Anderson, in response to people pointing out that his "watermelon" joke was as old as the hills, today updated it to avocados:

"Hard green casing on the outside, soft and mushy on the inside with a great big brown nut in the middle."

An amusing throwaway line. So how is it headlined?

Brown 'like an avocado seed'

Thats their quotation marks by the way. Did they not read it, or not get the joke? Imagine if Anderson had actually suggested Brown was "like an avocado seed"

"Hard green casing on the outside, soft and mushy on the inside with a great big brown seed in the middle."

Apart from not making any sense, I actually feel kind of dirty writing it...
