That Quotation Does Not Mean What You Think It Means

Prominently displayed in San Francisco Opera's latest e-opera is the headline from Joshua Kosman's Aida review:
Visual Banquet, Audible Buffet!
Uh...you know, that's equivocal. I would not use it to advertise my vocally spotty production of this opera.

Much better might have been "Aida: Skip the Buffet, Bring on the Elephants!"

"Auditory Buffet" might be slightly less bad. I really don't want my buffets to be audible.
