Fruit on naked women – level 1

09-09-2015 15:00

This news is from Sydney. A new bar opens there. It has an opening ceremony. It has something unusual at the ceremony.

Women lie on the tables. They are topless. There is fruit on them. People eat the fruit.

People take pictures of this. They put the pictures on the Internet. Most people are shocked when they see this.

Not everybody is shocked, however. One man says that this is a storm in a teacup.

Difficult words: ceremony (a party), topless (without a T-shirt or a bra), a storm in a teacup (a great reaction of shock about something which is not really shocking).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you shocked?
