I freakin' hate this type of homonym error. It always prompts me to think "their obese what?"...but there is no "what" in this case. There's just an idiot who can't figure out his or her homonyms and doesn't realize that this sort of thing isn't something spell-checker can fix. Seriously, though, having this sort of mistake in a headline is really inexcusable. Headlines are big! They have to be the quickest and easiest things to proofread since they're generally short and easy to read, right?
Thanks to AMY for spotting this error!
