It may not have been intentional, but the second clause (sorry for the pun) in this sentence, from “A Christmas Crime in the City,” by Beth Gillin of the Philadelphia Inquirer, includes a pretty clever double entendre:

It saddens us to report that Santa’s been zapped from a cherished Philadelphia holiday ritual -- the annual light show at the landmark Center City department store occupied since 1997 by Lord & Taylor.

Now, I understand that the demise of Wanamaker’s was hard for some Philadelphians to take, but really, occupied territory?
