What? Wait a minute!

Chris Willman of Yahoo!Music said this in his article about the Closing Ceremonies of the London Olympic Games, of which I saw not a minute of:

Neither of these was a low point, strangely enough. That would be Russell Brand covering the Beatles' "I Am the Walrus"... following a brief snippet of "Pure Imagination," which would surely have Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory director Mel Stuart spinning in his grave, if he hadn't just died two days ago and the funeral had already occurred.

Did I just read that right? Did he actually say, "he would be spinning in his grave, if he wasn't actually in his grave already."

That's almost worse than a double negative!

Sheesh! Yahoo would hire anyone. Just read a few entries by sports reporter Chris Chase, possibly the most belittled writer on the internet if the comments under his entries are any indication.
