By now there should have been the obvious wisecrack, how do we distinguish nones and nuns in conversation?

Yeah, also there are the afternoon prayers called nones.

@janeskid: The Flying Nones! The Singing Nones!

@empty: The prayerful nones is pronounced differently (rhymes with "bones"). It comes from the Latin word for "nine," because--if I understand it correctly--the praying takes place at the ninth hour after sunrise.

Nonetheless, it's the first thing I thought of.
