Yeah, that one must have hit too many buzz words on top of mocking the TSa folk. A bomb alone, who knows. The fact that the t being discussed was not a concern for the experts I the situation says more than anything.

Ok so now reads as more of a warning than a threat.

Yes. It is meant as a sarcastic warning and understandably pissed the TSA off.

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.
Now that's just funny.

Since I did not kill Inigo Montoya's father, I would not be threatened by the shirt.

From Wikipedia:
Box office
The film was initially a modest success,[7] grossing $30.8 million at the United States and Canada box office,[8] on a $16 million production budget.[9]

That word, flop. I do not think it means what you think it means.

A person whose primary language isn't English would likely comprehend or not the entire quote - not just three words at the end.
There are many non native English speakers in Australia and New Zealand whose language skills could well translate "prepare to die" but not the rest and who, like most non North Americans would have no clue about the film being referenced.

Anyway, what I think and what you think is totally irrelevant, the person on the plane was disturbed by what they saw and spoke to a flight attendant about it.

All of you so wonderfully immersed in this "iconic" piece of your "pop culture" are the ones making a mountain out of a molehill. You know the film inside out whilst others have never heard of it.

No big deal, try and get over it without being so defensive.

You really should watch it someday if you get the chance. It's adorable, family friendly and well, just plain good.
