Cherry Warning

It's cherry season in Rome, and they're irresistible. But not all cherries are equally delicious, and it can be tempting to try just one when the owner of the stand isn't looking, or to assume that the proprietor wouldn't mind, couldn't mind--they're so small. Hence the sign we found in our local Orto/Frutta. It translates like this:

Here we're not
in church
And this is not
Holy water
Thank you

Or "hands off the cherries!"
