'Lightning Bolt Kills TV Giraffe' Not What It Sounds Like

Categories: Breaking News

BBC News is no stranger to confusing headlines ("Turkey scarf mars anniversary" comes to mind), but this one caught our attention for reasons beyond the usual funny abbreviations and crash blossoms: "Lightning Bolt Kills TV Giraffe." Could it be true? Well, no, not the way you're thinking.

The actual story, which involves the freak death of Hamley, sometime fixture on the British TV drama Wild At Heart, is plenty sad -- but we just wanted to reassure you that it had nothing to do with the punishing squalls of Rhode Island noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt, who we assume were nowhere near South Africa at the time.

Or were they?
