Hello, my name is...

I spotted this t-shirt* online somewhere and am loving it**.

What? Not ringing a bell? C'mon, you know, Princess Bride? Six-fingered man? Oh hell, you're hopeless. Go watch this.

Princess Bride

Now do you get it? Ain't that some good shit?

A key component of my entirely arbitrary and unquantifiable method of ranking movies is the number of memorable quotes. This film ranks pretty high. I think The Jerk may be the all-time winner, although The Big Lebowski is a contender, and f'n hlarious, to boot. (Warning: that last link to YouTube contains a lot of f'n language.)

* I wish I wore t-shirts or ball caps or put bumper stickers on my car. There are so very many great ones out there on the interweb and I can only house so many coffee mugs and refrigerator magnets....

** I am loving it so much that I went out and bought the DVD, even after having previously counciled myself that there would be no more buying of movies on DVD. I mean, why buy DVDs? Isn't that why God invented Netflix? But I did it anyway. It's that good.


  1. Awesome shirt. You must tell me where you saw it.

    Ok, not "you must" but I'd love it if you did.

  2. Unpaid plug: The also have a decent Big Lebowski collection.


  3. I once took one of those Myspace or Facebook quizzes where it tells you what character you are - I was the Dred Pirate Roberts/Wesley and I was absolutely thrilled. My husband got Buttercup.
