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 Star’s headline of ‘It’s Till Hef Us Do Part’ about Playboy boss Hugh Hefner, who is reportedly worth £28million.  Seemingly he has drawn up a prenuptial agreement before his wedding to Crystal Harris.  The headline is a simple play on the phrase ’till death us do part’ from the marriage liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer.
