Okay, this is at my own expense, but it’s so hilarious that I have to share. In my original review of King Lear, which was posted on straight.com last Friday, I wrote the most epic fail of a lead ever.
Here it is: “If you mount King Lear and you don’t go deep, the results can make for a very long night.”
Ai yi yi. I think I’ve got a dirty mind, but I must have read that lead a dozen times before I submitted the review, and the unintentional innuendo sailed right past me. Fortunately, an online commenter pointed it out and I managed to change it before the print copy came out.
So phew. But still, unbelievable, right? I pray that I will never top it—so to speak.
