Exactly, it is ON A T-SHIRT. People making threats...actual real life threats are not printing them on a T-****.
Lol, no kidding.

Really if the security people had no issue all the more reason mr busybody needed to take a Valium rather than be a pitb.

Lol it isn't meant to startle. It is meant to evoke an image of a movie character. Small writing on a tshirt

Just like Arnold on a tshirt doesn't mean the person is a robot. Or that the three stooges are going to poke you in the eyes....

We were talking about this last night at a BBQ at home. Of the 20 or so Australian's at the table, not one of us had ever heard of this movie. So its not inconcievable to think that other Australian's had not either.
I've just googled the movie to find out what it was about. It was released in 1987 and said that it made 30.8million at the box office (considered a flop), predominantly in the US and Canada. It wasn't until it made it to video that it became popular, again in the US and Canada. I would expect that there were many on that plane, probably the majority, that didn't know of its existance.

So...they saw the shirt and reacted with fear and trembling?

Made to startle? No. Not in any way. Even misinterpreted as the threat it's not, as pointed out above, taken in context - aka reading the entire message, not picking & choosing - only passengers who'd killed someone should have the slightest concern.

I'm not getting into whether the reaction of those travelling were justified or not. Just because I would think one thing, doesn't mean I expect all others to think the same.

My response was just to indicate that its not a cult classic here. Even the movie buffs in our group had never heard of it. I just looked on the list of DVD's available at our local DVD shop and its not on the list.

I understand this. I think most of us are speaking as Americans. FWIW the "inconceivable" is another running line in the movie.

That said. The T-Shirt (or one very similar) is posted above. Honestly, would you feel threatened? Or would you think, that's odd, must be in reference to something I'm not familiar with?

I see a lot of humor T-Shirts from things I'm not well versed in...Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter...not really my "thing" but I'm aware that such things exist so I think "hummm that must be from a movie/tv show/comic book" rather than feel intimidated by it.

So, for the people who would feel threatened by someone wearing the Princess Bride shirt: Would you also feel threatened (or at least made uncomfortable) by someone wearing a tshirt with the name of a band that's unsettling? For example, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie, Fine Young Cannibals? Again, words that could be taken as a threat, but on a tshirt, obviously a cultural reference.

The T-shirt above looks completely pre-printed. When I first saw the one from the plane I thought it looked like it had been handwritten. It was only looking more carefully that I realised it was preprinted.

No it wouldn't have bothered me. And yes, I would have thought it was just something I was unfamiliar with. But I can't speak for everyone.

I wondered if a t-shirt with a bomb on it or even the word "bomb" would be a-OK with our own TSA and well ... apparently not.

A man wearing this t-shirt



described as featuring

Quote:
... a screaming eagle clutching an unlaced shoe and a crushed water bottle, surrounded by the motto MOISTURE BOMBS ZOMG TERRORISTS ZOMG GONNA KILL US ALL ZOMG ZOMG ALERT LEVEL BLOODRED RUN RUN TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES.
was asked to remove it, submit to extra screening and board his plane last. Even though he complied with everything he was still taken off the plane and made to stay the night at his expense and fly standby the next day.

The guy should have just covered it up with a holocaust cloak.

Yes, another film reference. We all loved that movie.

Even after your quote and reading that blog, I have no idea what that is suppose to be saying.

I think the key thing being missed is that it's not always about "you" and what bothers "you." It's about the realization that other people are bothered by things that you don't understand and being willing to put "your" preferences aside for one minute and just be NICE.

This whole thread reminds me of someone sticking in their middle finger up in the air and making it clear that no one else matters.

If you realize you are frightening someone, roll your eyes later and talk about how goofy it was, but just put yourself and your own thoughts aside for a brief period of time.

It amazes me that people are unwilling to do even that much for a fellow human being.
