Word of the day: pillory (v.) "to expose to ridicule or public scorn"

Example (from The Economist):

Mr Houellebecq's fame and notoriety stem in large part from two of his earlier novels: "The Elementary Particles", which pillories the narcissism of the 1960s countercultural revolution, and "Platform", which argues the case for sex tourism and depicts a violent terrorism attack pre-9/11.
