Our hard work is finally starting to pay fruit

This subtle gem was overheard at a meeting.  It is a congruent conflation of “pay off” and “bear fruit”, both meaning to yield positive benefits or results.   Those cherries sure start to add up after working hard.  A big thanks to Joel Ringer who heard this one and passed it on.
