  10. 1) Lockdown rules do not apply to horses singing and making music on the streets

    2) Ducks use teamwork to rob money from a ladies hand bag

    The duck steals some money to buy her children some worms.
    Picture 3:
    The dog wants to escape from its owner.😂
    The wolf eats the grandma.😂

  12. 1.Horse Head Musical
    I would name it this because there are two people playing instruments with a horse type of costume on their head and it is really weird just doing that. Also they were probably trying to attract attention and try and act like comedians or something.
    2.2nd Theft This Week: A goose?!?!
    I would name it this because I really don’t think that geese exactly know what money is and what it looks like also geese aren’t that smart to pick up something and put it in the bin, forget picking up money and trying to be smart by stealing it.
    3.Dog Driving Conspiracy????!!!!
    I would name it this because dogs do have a form of their own hands and legs but isn’t this weird that a dog is driving!?!? No dog has ever driven a car before so this all just has to be a hoax!! Dos cant be that smart!!!??

  13. Number 1
    2 men playing music in style
    Number 2
    Desperate measures to feed her ducklings
    Number 3
    Road hazard when dog was seen driving a car.

  14. 1. Horse heading talent – I named it this because the people are dressing up and horse and playing because they have talent. So horse always heads forward so horse heading forward.
    2. Dealing ducks- Because whilst 1 duck is behind the other ducks are distracting the person and the ducks might split it because there working together but when I mean split I think there going to rip it.
    3. . Dogs cruising- I named it this because In the photo it looks like the dog is driving the car but he really isn’t.

  15. 1.Belgians are encouraged to eat more fries to make the farmers richer.
    2.Someone who steals nickers gets arrested in Singapore for breaking the lockdown .
    3.Despite the virus many Germans are still going to shops to buy buaggetes.
    4.A woman in Rome got fined for taking a turtle on a walk.

    1.Escaped horses decide to play musical instrument on the streets.
    2.Dog caught on camera taking money from someone.
    3.A dog hijacked a car and takes it on a spin around London.

  16. 1. I think the first headline about money because no one is eating fries and the potatoe farmer is not getting any money.
    2. I think this could be about someone who steals underwear gets robbed.
    3. The virus is out but it can’t stop the Germans from eating baguettes 🥖.
    4. A woman got fined for taking a turtle on a walk.
    5. Two horses playing music on the streets.
    6. Duck steals money from a women’s bag.
    7. A dog found driving a car.

  17. 1. Horse headed performers. I would name it this because there wearing horse mask and they are performing. I also think that they wore this to make the people on the streets laugh.
    2. Duck theft. I named it this because the duck is stealing s the money out of the business women bag/purse.
    3. Dog with hand and legs? I would name it this because dogs don’t usually have hand and legs with fingers but there is are fingers driving. It also looks like the dog is a human. (I know that it is a human being and the dogs face is popping through the window),

  18. 1)I believe the first “ridiculous headline” could be about, potato farmers, not making enough income, as many people are not buying fries, due to the fact that now-a-days, more people are trying to live a healthy lifestyle.
    I then made a google search, which help me find this article by “REUTERS” talking about how Belgian Farmers, are making less income by about 40% and how potato farmers won’t be able to process almost more than a million potatoes this year!

    2)The second “insane headline” could be about a thief in a certain Singaporean town, this could be reporting about his thefts, or it could be talking about who it is. I then found this article, and it was talking about someone stealing pants/underwear in their local area, that thief however, gets their underwear stolen. THE IRONY!

    3)The next “crazy headline” has a possibility of being about Germans, breaking set lockdown rules, just so that they can get their baguettes, whether this be about not keeping a two-meter distance, e.t.c.
    I then googled this, to then find out that this is true.

    4)The last but not the least “mental headline” is about a lady, who simply took her tortoise, out for a stroll, she was then fined a rough estimate of €440 (four-hundred-and-fourty euros) due to “breaking social distancing rules”

  19. Do your bit for farmers and eat more fries, Belgians urged.

    I think tis headline is about the struggle for farmers financially and how they cant sell as much as they used to so to and food is going to waste , so to help the potato situation they are urging people to buy more fries.

    This headline could be about a naughty knicker thief who was bored of staying at home so breached the lockdown rules to entertain/amuse himself.

    Virus can’t stop German’s getting their baguettes

    Personally I think this headline is saying people in Germany are not letting the virus stop them from getting their baguettes from supermarkets and bakeries .

    Woman fined for taking turtle for a walk in Rome

    This headline could mean she was fined for one thing or another or both: She could be fined for having an endangered and protected species as a pet or breaking lockdown rules or for both.
