Cheesy Caracas

The plague spreads... Another damnable example of the bastardised form in a headline, this time from Venezuelan financial organ VenEconomy, and republished here by Petroleum World:

All mouth and no trousers
The Central Bank of Venezuela has just announced that the Consumer Price Index for the Caracas Metropolitan Area fell by 0.7% in March, the lowest monthly rate in 19 years.

As with last week's Economist headline (below), it's particularly annoying because the head (in either form) has very little to do with the story.
