    do me a lemon!

    Does anyone know what the expression "do me a lemon" means? I've heard it from someone from London. Is it the same as do me a favour or do me a flavour? Does it relate to Cockney slang?

    It is the same- some suggest it's from lemon flavour for favour. Maybe it has split two ways, so some use lemon and some use flavour instead of favour.
