I have to confess: I have no idea. Can someone explain this to me?

As you wish. It's an uncompromisingly arcane Princess Bride reference.

Inconceivable! If all else fails, Princess Bride will sell (that and cute kittens/penguins). I'll think on this one, I've already bought one Princess Bride shirt.

Edit: just beaten to the line by post above.

I am trying to resist picking this up. I am such a huge PB fan though. I insta bought the battle wits shirt.

An excellent shirt - i'm sure it will sell very well come morning. But in the meantime, I suggest you rest well and dream of large women...

You didn't always take me where I wanted to go.
No, but I always took you where you needed to go.

It's a Princess bride reference. It's hilarious!
I'll post a clip in a minute.

Beaten by more than five others, still great.

Upon seeing the shirt I had a million Princess Bride quotes flood my mind, ie, "You are the brute squad". Upon reading the write up though, I had a certain Monty Python scene come to mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIaORknS1Dk

Now I'm torn, Princess Bride, Monty Python, Princes Bride, Monty Python PB. MP....oh this is a mental mash up that won't end well, thanks a lot Woot for linking those up in my mind now. My subconscious is gonna go nuts now with my dreams.

It's not really the rewarding career path that you might expect it to be. These days people just don't need anyone stoned as often as they used to...

PE = potential energy. KE = kinetic energy. With all due respect, as a physics student and TPB fan I think this shirt will not sell. The art is meh and the text too.

Also, they are missing the PE (perhaps modeled as a spring?) in the tosser's arm.

I love PB and science and puns. I only wish the whole thing were done in variables (v rather than 5ish). Unless there's some reason for that, that I'm missing?

Huh. It was my understanding that "EVERYBODY must get stoned."

Hello my name is Fred Savage. My grandpa was Columbo. He used to read me girly bedtime stories. Please buy this shirt in his memory.

The 6th and 10th stones need to be checked before throwing by the grammar police. "Let he who is name?" "Let he who is moustache?" For shame, Woot.

I read the book years before there was a movie. I suggest reading the book! You'll enjoy the book and you won't hear the movie voices in your head. Just make sure it's not a "movie version" of the book.

I enjoyed both equally. If you read the Goldman book you find out some very interesting stuff about the movie. Like Goldman shouted "her dress is on fire" on set after writing the script. Also Andre/Fezzik climbed the Cliffs of Insanity to help get into character.

I bet you're wondering why you've had such a hard time finding the original Morgenstern...

Honestly, this is one instance where I thought the movie was at least as good as the book. Seeing the movie first didn't ruin the experience of reading the book at all for me because the cast was just *that* perfect.
