A Very English Sign

Outside the Folk House, off Bristol's Park St., where last night I watched my friend John Dougherty and his a cappella group Original Sing, there is a small courtyard with benches and tables, where customers can eat. By the entrance there is a sign that reads:

Please do not eat food in this courtyard that has not been purchased from the Folk House.


Underneath, in letters just as large, is printed:

Please do not put us in the awkward position of having to ask you to stop.


That, of course, is the greater crime.
