I will go up to the six fingered man and say…

…Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Just before I left work today I got an email from the corporate blog announcing that a new post was online. I decided to wait until the following day to read it, and didn’t even check the headline. I then began closing programs on my screen. As I got down to Seesmic, I noticed that someone had tweeted at us a few minutes prior. Turns out, it was Inigo Montoya, a star of one of my favorite movies.
The blog post uses “inconceivable!,” that classic Vizzini catchphrase, in the title. It seems someone has set up a robot to respond every time someone tweets it with, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Inigo also tweets several other great lines such as, “You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.”
Absolutely brilliant. Even the dred pirate Robert would agree, I’m sure. Count Rugen, maybe not so much.
