What term is there for questions like:

  1. How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat? (Gaming)
  2. So I was out drinking last night...how do I remove a tattoo? (Gaming)

which generate a lot of traffic from people from other sites going "What the?" at the title?

I've encountered two questions today that seem to be "guilty" of that, and I want to know what to call it.
