Prepare to die

Michelle Cooke at Stuff reported:

For many people it is just a famous, comical quote, but some passengers on a New Zealand-bound flight did not see the funny side in Wynand Mullins’ T-shirt, which read “Prepare to die”.

In hindsight, Mr Mullins says his T-shirt, with a popular quote from the fantasy film The Princess Bride, may not have been the best clothing choice for a flight, but he believes the reaction of Qantas was over the top.

Mr Mullins, a Kiwi living in Sydney, was one of the first to board his Auckland-bound flight on Sunday evening. While other passengers took their seats, Mr Mullins was approached by a flight attendant who said some people on board were intimidated by the words on his shirt.

The shirt had a large name tag which read: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

The line is one of the most memorable from the 80s movie The Princess Bride.

I can’t believe someone complained about that. Unless you were in fact the killer of Inigo Montoya’s father it obviously doesn’t apply to you!

A great film. Have watched it a dozen times at least.
