Here's Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer eating a lemon



Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, never one to turn down a good meme, filmed himself eating a lemon yesterday as part of the #LemonsForLeukemia Challenge.

"Mmmm, ooooooh, wooooo!" says Dyer in the video. A classic Buddy reaction.

Dyer was nominated for the challenge by Kissimmee Mayor Jose Alvarez and Orlando Police Chief John Mina. The new viral challenge is meant to raise awareness for bone marrow donation sign-ups.
