Medical experts were blaming the Daily Express again today for a further bout of exploding heads.
The paper's Hickey column this morning led with an item about Jeremy Paxman's interviews with US Senator John McCain and self-styled "libertarian socialist" Noam Chomsky.
The interviews took place on the BBC's flagship news magazine show, Newsnight, on Tuesday and concerned Libya and the middle-east 'revolutions.'
Hickey says Paxo treated Sen McCain with "thinly veiled disdain" but was "positively deferential" with Prof Chomsky.
Hospital and ambulance services started receiving calls at breakfast time this morning.
Mrs Lila Splash, of Chipping Norton, said: "I just don't understand it. My husband, Bertram, was having a cup of tea and suddenly spluttered 'Bloody Paxman' and there was a loud popping sound... when I turned round, his head had exploded.
"It's not as though he watches Newsnight."
Dr Jeremy Paxman (no relation), of the Exploding Head Research Unit at Leeds General Infirmary, said: "This is is so typical, I'm afraid, and we can't see an end to these breakfast-time explosions until someone leans on the Express to make it recognise the effect it has on its readers.
"Perhaps the paper should be made to carry a warning on its masthead?"
