Funny news

Hi there!

Who said reading news is boring? I’ve been browsing through different websites which may make you laugh and also help you understand English better.

A couple of examples are Orange news quirkies (includes videos too!) and Oddly Enough news from Reuters.

For those who enjoy this sort of reading, here you are a website which compiles links to a great number of newspapers all around the world. The good thing about the list is it forwards you straight to the “weird news” section, so that you don’t have to look for it.

Finally, you might also need to have a look at the language of headlines. Headlines in English are not too easy at first sight, but once you understand the basics, you’ll be fine. I recommend you this summary on ESLabout, a very useful website on different topics.

  1. He who laughs has not yet heard the bad news. (Bertolt Brecht) Ha ha ha!

  2. Very appropriate, Carlos! ; )
    He who laughs last, laughs best.
    Hope to see you all soon.

  3. But he who laughs last is probably your boss, ha ha ha!
