A selection of headlines from stories in the news.  They use English in a way that you might think is intended to confuse, but it’s all perfectly clear to the native speaker.

“Black To The Future”, was a News of the World headline on a report that one billion people had switched off their lights to support the Earth Hour energy conservation project.

The headline is a play on the title of the hit 1985 sci-fi film ‘Back To The Future’.  The word “black” is used because when all the lights go out we call it a blackout.
