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 Mail On Sunday matches up new technology and a hit TV show for it’s headline of ‘Only Fools and iPads.’  The story reports that broadcasters are to be given the go-head for ‘product placement’ advertising, which will allow companies to pay for their brands to appear within programmes for the first time in British TV history. This will include vintage BBC shows like ‘Only Fools and Horses’ when they appear on channels that carry advertising, such as UK Gold and Dave, hence the headline ‘Only Fools and iPads.’
