'You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means'

Inconceivable! A Tribute of an Unusual Size to ‘The Princess Bride’
A six-fingered man. Prince Humperdinck. Cliffs of Insanity. Mawage. Miracle Max.

On Sept. 25, 1987, Rob Reiner invited film goers to the fictional land of Florin for a romantic adventure filled with sword fights, outlaws and undying — or mostly undying — true love.

In the 25 years since its big screen debut, The Princess Bride has developed a following with a dedication to the film that rivals Westley’s devotion to Buttercup. Honoring the movie with anything less than a André the Giant-size tribute would be inconceivable.

For an even more authentic trip down memory lane, ask a grandfatherly figure to read the content out this tribute out loud to you while curled up in bed surrounded by Chicago sports paraphernalia. Or maybe just go for a scroll down the page.

I do love that movie. :)
