Link Bait is the hottest new fad in link building, and I keep my eyes open for obvious examples.  If it weren't on CNN, I wouldn't even believe it.  This is one of the funniest articles I have read in awhile:

"Study: More Americans too fat for X-rays, scans" 
http://www.cnn.com/2006/HEALTH/07/26/obesity.xrays.reut/index.html (there, I linked to it)

Basically, the article states that as a result of eating too many double cheeseburgers, Americans are either not fitting into the machines, or the machines just plain can't penetrate the cheeseburger-shielding.

As a side-note, I'd never poke fun at obese people who have eating disorders or genetic diseases; but most Americans just eat too many cheeseburgers.  So I guess the moral of the story is that even real news can be link bait.
