Ok, I had to pretty much laugh my ass off when I saw this article about a guy apparently causing an uproar with his Princess Bride shirt on an airliner. The offending line, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.”
First off, really. It’s a flippin’ shirt. Unless, the reader of the shirt killed his father you’re likely safe. I realize bad things have happened, but now we’re going to be worried about someone wearing a Princess Bride T-Shirt. I’m very scared of that kind of world.
Secondly, I realize that if you haven’t seen the movie the quote could be taken out of context. Well, seriously folks, what kind of a world do we live in where people haven’t seen this movie? Even if they haven’t, my god there’s been tons of memes out there on the internet with that quote. I realize anything is possible, but a plane full of people who hasn’t seen that quote around the internet. A plane full of people who didn’t get the joke.
Either way, I thought I’d throw this up for shits and giggles, since it almost caused me to giggle and shit.
So, until next time….
