The Boy

If you hadn't heard, washed up former Culture Club frontperson Boy George finds himself in a spot of trouble. Allegedly, the Boy invited a male escort over ("to pose") and then the Boy and another man grabbed the guy and chained him to the wall. Anyway, the thing that elevates this Daily Mail article from mere tabloid trash to maliciously bitchy work of genius is this sentence:

"He alleges that Boy George, whose hits include Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?, produced a box of whips and sex toys and told him: “Now you’ll get what you deserve.”

As the Guinness people like to say, I find the use of that song title in that line to be Brilliant! Now a question. Could this story be improved upon by substituting another artist associated with an even more appropos song title? Maybe an actor and a movie title?
