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 Mail is eagerly anticipating the return of Britain’s Got Talent, which is always guaranteed to fill a few column inches. The headlined story is about one contestant, a band called Take Fat; five rather chubby men with a love of the music of Take That. Weighing in at 80 stone, the band is aptly named, but what is even funnier is the names the band have taken for themselves: Blobbie Willams (for Robbie), Gary Lardo (for Barlow), Jason Chocolate Orange (for Jason Orange), Howard McDonalds (Howard Donald) and Mark Growin (Mark Owen).
