More Mis-Quotes

I while ago I wrote about marketing teams for Broadway shows getting .... Overly creative about the blurbs they use to promote a show... my favorite example being critic saying something like "a Brilliant example of what not to see ..." and the resulting blurb reading "Brilliant!"

The London Times ran a piece about this ... phenomenon.
