English in the News

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.

Lewis Weightman and Sam Gorman keep 53 snakes, including boa constrictors and pythons, in their home in Bulkington, Warwickshire hence the Daily Star headline 'It's Hiss & Hers.'

Hiss is used as in the noise a snake makes instead of 'his.'
