That’s personal

A Kelowna church sign gets cheeky interpretation

Residents in Rutland are getting the giggles over a query posed by a local church.

The Rutland United Church used a space they usually reserve for service times to offer a more interest piquing sign. “Easter comes once a year, how about you?” it reads.

It appears someone saw some humour in the question and posted their answer on a cardboard sign beneath. It read “that’s personal.”

This caught the attention of a few more people who posted photos of the double entendre to Facebook, and a few more weighed in on what they saw as a risqué joke.

This type of humorous ambiguity is a mainstay in the repetoires of Late Night TV hosts, who get a laugh out of compiling earnestly written community signs that can be interpreted multiple ways.

The Rutland United Church was clearly trying to get people to attend their service on Sundays and not just during religious holidays. It was not intended to be offensive or convey any indelicate subtext.

The sign still remains, but the cardboard portion has been removed and instead the church is encouraging residents to attend the Sunday service at 10 a.m. including on Easter April 16.
