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.

Another witty Daily Mirror headline plays around with the news that the Chinese government is trying to buy Liverpool football club.  The headline ‘You’ll never wok alone’ uses the word ‘wok’ instead of ‘walk’.  ‘You’ll never walk alone’ is a famous football chant at Anfield.

The word ‘wok’ is a pan with a convex bottom; used for frying in Chinese cooking, but you’ll often found one in a typical English kitchen.  I store mine under a cupboard.
