This is arguably the greatest food sign ever. It would have been enough if Barzini's Grocery had given us "Seeless Grapes." Using the color green for the word "RED" to subtly demonstrate the Stroop Effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroop_effect) was an added treat. But "PAPER RAPE" took this sign to the big dance. After much discussion, it has been determined that the "author" intended to write "PAPER GRAPE" to reference the paper bag surrounded the grapes, and not to suggest the grapes consist of wood pulp. After all, plastic rape isn't biodegradable. Barzini's, we salute you.
