Plane passengers freak, prepare to die over guy’s ‘Inigo Montoya’ t-shirt

Jan 23, 2013

A New Zealand man named Wynand Mullins (!) currently living Australia was flying home to Auckland recently wearing what sounds like a totally sweet t-shirt—it was emblazoned with the quote, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

Mullins was apparently riding on a plane full of 6-fingered men or complete philistines, because apparently lots of people on the plane took his t-shirt seriously and immediately prepared to die. They thought their number was up.

Mullins tells the Australian version of Stuff Magazine (!) that a flight attendant approached him and asked if he could please change his t-shirt, because it was freaking out some of the passengers. “The flight attendant said to me: ‘Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it,’” Mullins tells Stuff.

Mullins apparently did not have another shirt in his carry-on (hello, when you’re wearing a t-shirt that sweet why carry a backup?). The flight attendant left to go see if she could find another shirt for him to wear—and while he briefly hoped he’d score a captain’s uniform shirt she never came back. And according to Stuff she “didn’t make eye contact with Mr Mullins again.”

A Qantas rep said they had no record of the incident and that it was probably handled on-board. Which is probably all for the best—if airport security is cool with your t-shirt, your fellow passengers probably should be, too.

In the end no one had to prepare to die. Also, the man was not really Inigo Montoya.
