An example:

"In 1895 Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years hard labour. A more cruel and unusual punishment has been devised by Mike Read - a musical of exquisite awfulness" - London Evening Standard.

"The sound system is being affected by the hefty rumbling of Oscar Wilde turning in his grave" - Elisabeth Mahoney, The Guardian
