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 Sun’s headline of ‘Ewe Lot Have Been Tangoed’  about Devon farmer John Heard who has dyed his entire flock of 250 sheep orange to deter rustlers, makes use of the advertising slogan ‘You’ve Been Tangoed’, used to advertise a popular orange soft drink called Tango. Ewe is the word for adult female sheep.
