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 yo the native speaker.
Elvis Presley is behind a headline in the Sun on a story about Louie, a nine month old pig, who goes for walks with dogs, responds to his name and plays fetch. Louie can also leap over jumps, weave around poles, run through tunnels and tackle see-saws. Owner Sue Williams, from Porthmados in Wales, lets him perform at shows with her 15 trained dogs. The Sun headline is ‘You Ain’t Nothing But A Houng Hog’, a play on the Elvis lyric You Ain’t Nothing But A Hound Dog, replacing ‘Dog’ with ‘Hog’.
