07-04-2017 07:00

In Florida, a man does a strange thing. He sits in a chair at a table. He eats pancakes. He does this in the middle of the street. Someone takes a video of him doing this. He puts the video on Facebook.

The police see the video. They charge the prankster. They say that he blocks the road. They also say that he disrupts the traffic.

Difficult words: charge (tell someone what he or she does wrong), prankster (a person who does strange things to try to be funny), disrupt (cause problems, interrupt).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
