He didn’t try to sneak shrieking eels past security or channel the menace of Dread Pirate Roberts, yet a recent flight turned into the Pit of Despair for a passenger with a fondness for “The Princess Bride.”
Wynand Mullins was flying from Sydney, Australia, to Auckland, New Zealand, on Qantas Airways on Sunday when his T-shirt prompted concern among passengers and crew, he told New Zealand media.
Mullins was wearing a shirt adorned with the image of a giant name tag with the slogan: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Fans of the ever-quotable 1987 fantasy romance, “The Princess Bride,” will recognize it as one of the best-known lines from the film, but travelers on board the flight apparently found it threatening, Mullins told Stuff, a news outlet in New Zealand.
