A Terror Only to Five-Fingered Men

You keep using that word....
You keep using that word….
We all know the line right? You know the one, say it with me, loud and proud. “Hello, My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die.” And if you don’t happen to know that line, then you should go and find a copy of The Princess Bride right now. Stop reading and find this movie. Not only does it have pirates, wrestling, fencing, rescues, escapes, et. al., but it has Peter Falk as the world’s greatest Grandpa. Anyway, I’m getting distracted. So what happens when you wear this quote on a plane? You get accused of terrorism.

Wynand Mullins of Sydney, thinking that it was nothing more than a silly quote from a good movie, wore the line proudly on his t-shirt. He was then approached by a flight attendant who said that people were intimidated by it. Meanwhile, the person sitting next to him found the whole affair pretty funny. Mr. Mullins admitted to not having another shirt freely available and hoped to get a pilot’s shirt, just to see how everyone reacted. The flight attendant left and didn’t make contact with him for the rest of the flight. I mean, it could have been worse, he could have been a Sicilian, and we all know what happens when you mess with a Sicilian when death is on the line.

    Inconceivable!

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    I do love this movie, and the book.
