per volta

Parola del giorno | Word of the day

Today’s Parola del giorno is the expression per volta, which means at a time. Sometimes you see this also used in the expression una cosa alla/per volta, which means one thing at a time.

I thought of this expression when I saw this on Facebook earlier today! Can you decipher the joke?
