Signs of the times

The FFRF bought poster-room on the side of a bus: it says "Sleep in on Sunday." I suspect they don't suspect the irony of the slogan: without Christianity Sunday wouldn't be a holiday--it would be more in keeping with the Microsoft Way ("If you don't show up for work at 7 on Saturday, don't even bother coming to work Sunday").

A building near campus, which looks rather like it used to be a church, holds a building called the Church Key, specializing in liquor. Since the instrument sometimes known as a church key has been largely superseded by pull tabs, the pun escapes notice; and signs outside the building now advertise it as "C.Key" Embarrassed, are they?
