Not Quite In The Same League As "Hot Enough To Boil A Monkey's Bum"

As you know, I like to point out journalistic errors. They're even funnier because the journalist has made the error and it may have been an oversight on behalf of a sub-editor and/or editor to allow it to pass. I found a rather strange expression, although it has to be said that it's not in the same league as Monty Python's "Hot enough to boil a monkey's bum in here, your majesty" from the Bruce skit, in an article the other day.

It begs the question, "'What are dead ears'"? Perhaps the journalist meant "deaf ears".
