English In Use – ‘Don’t Cry For Me – Argie Cleaner’

A selection of headlines from stories in the news. They use English in way that you might think is intended to confuse but it’s all perfectly clear to the native speaker.

Fabulous headline from The Sun on a story that Manchester City’s Argentinian footballer Carlos Tevez has been sentenced to 250 hours community service, which could include carrying out unpaid jobs such as cleaning, after admitting to driving while disqualified and without insurance.

The headline reads: ‘Don’t Cry For Me – Argie Cleaner’ – a clever play on the song ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ from the 1978 hit musical Evita.
