Corrie cat’s ashes smash target

From the BBC 22 July 2010 (source).

The article itself (now?) inserts the word “auction” which makes the headline clear, but it appears in RSS feeds and in the BBC’s “Most Popular” list as “Corrie cat’s ashes smash target”. Also in this BBC Twitter post:

I was wondering why people wanted to smash the urn containing the ashes of this cat from a soap opera, i.e. why it was such a smash target?
