This man wants to be married – level 1

Hundreds of motorbikes stopped cars on a big road in California because one man wanted to marry his girlfriend. People on motorbikes slowed and then stopped all the traffic.

The man made a big cloud of pink smoke. Then he jumped down from his bike and he asked his girlfriend to marry him. She said yes but the story can have a bad end because police were not happy. The man and his girlfriend can go to prison now.

Interesting words: marry (start to be a husband and wife), slow (make slower).
