This is a headline from The Daily Mirror, a popular English newspaper. Anyone know what it says?
Hadaway, them Yanks divint get wor Cheryl.
Haddaway: I don't believe it/you must be joking/ get away with you
divint : don't
wor : placed before someone's name to indicate they are family = our Cheryl
They have to be kidding! The Yanks say they just don't get/understand (=actually referring to understanding her Geordie accent) our Cheryl (Cole).

Ah, aren't our British dialects wonderful?
When you think that some sentences of Dutch would be more comprehensible to southern English speakers than that priceless bit of Geordie...
