John Lemon – level 1

27-09-2017 15:00

‘John Lemon’ is a lemonade company. ‘Lemon’ sounds like ‘Lennon’. The company also has some advertisements with the famous singer, John Lennon.

Yoko Ono is John Lennon’s widow. She sues John Lemon. John Lemon can hire lawyers and fight back. Or it has to change its name.

The company changes its name. Their new name is ‘On Lemon’.

Difficult words: advertisement (a picture which can make you buy something), widow (a woman whose husband is dead), sue (say that somebody did something illegal to you), hire (pay to work for you).
