New hope for lemons!

As the drink machine notes, this is "classic."

Our local mall really does have everything: Orange Julius, Victoria’s Secret and a “lemon-aid” stand. I think if they had just gone with “lemonaid,” it would have been worth just a chuckle. But the addition of the hyphen brings to mind the famous Band-Aid bandage brand. Now all I can envision is bumped and bruised lemons lining up for triage.

Mello Yello drinkers, yes, I noticed the double w’s. You may be carbonated, but at least you’re not hyphenated.
