Seabass Throws Small Child While Wakesurfing

Can I bother you, dear readers, with an existential query?

No? Ok, cool. Gonna do it anyways.    

Does the title: Seabass Throws Small Child While Wakesurfing constitute as "clickbait"? I guess my question is, does veracity in labeling negate the forces of psychological trickery, or does the act of enticing you to click with intriguing prose inherently establish itself as clickbait? I think we need to clearly delineate this issue, for posterity's sake.

When I formulate a title, I'm trying to generate interest through clicks, true, but rarely am I trying to mislead. I feel like that's an important distinction, but maybe you feel differently. 

For example, the article How Paris Hilton's Sex Tape, Surfing, And Animal Rescue All Connect garnered a fair bit of abuse for its titling, but in my opinion it was tying three of the story's most interesting points together to make a relatively humdrum tale more palatable. But maybe I'm wrong.

Either way, feel free to enjoy Seabass surfing all over the world and tossing a small child while wake surfing. It's not a bad way to spend your weekend.
