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.


The Daily Mirror headline of ‘Arge-ant Pepper’ is on a picture story about Paul McCartney wowing an audience in Buenos Aires by playing former Beatles classic songs during his visit to Argentina.

The headline is a play on the title of the Beatles 1967 album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  (Sgt stands for sergeant.)
