How about giving us a definition of what "Iocane" powder is?

Ben, read and learn.

Westley: Good. Then pour the wine. (Westley pulls out a small cylinder) Inhale this, but do not touch.

Vincini: I smell nothing.

Westley: What you do not smell is called Iocane powder. It is
odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadly poisons known to man.

Vincini: Hmm!

(Westley puts powder in wine behind his back and produces the two glasses again) Westley: Alright, where is the poison? The Battle of Wits has begun. Its ends when you decide and we both drink and find out who is right, and who is dead.

Vincini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I
know of you: Are you the sort of man who would put the poison into
his own goblet or his enemies? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool--you would have counted on it--so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me!

Westley: You've made your decision then?

Vincini: Oh not remotely! Because Iocane comes from Australia, as
everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals. And criminals are used to having people not trust them as you are not trusted by me so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.

Westley: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

Vincini: Wait 'till I get going! Where was I?

Westley: Australia.

Vincini: Yes, Australia! And you must have suspected I would've know the powder's origin so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Westley: You're just stalling now.

Vincini: You'd like to think that wouldn't you?!? You've beaten my
giant which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your own goblet trusting on your strength to save you, so I
can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also
bested my Spaniard, which means you must've studied--and in studying you must've learned that man is mortal, so you would've put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Westley: You're trying to trick into giving away something. It won't work.

Vincini: It has worked! You've given everything away! I know where the poison is!

Westley: Then make your choice!

Vincini: I will. And I choose--What in the world can that be?!?

Westley: What? Where? (Westley turns around and Vincini switches
goblets) I don't see anything.

Vincini: Oh well I... I could've sworn I saw something..uhhhh, no
matter. (chuckles)

Westley: What's so funny?

Vincini: I-I'll tell ya in a minute. First, let's drink. Me from my glass and you from yours.
(they drink, Vincini chuckles)

Westley: You guessed wrong.

Vincini: You only think I guessed wrong. That's what's so funny! I
switched glasses when your back was turned! Haha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! aHAHAHAHAHAhaha! Hahahahaha! aHahaha--
**CLUMP** (Vincini falls over dead)

Aim, my thoughts:

A horrible accident that has probably happened to hundrends of hunters. Somthing that is personal and has no bearing on VP Cheney's ability to execute the office of Vice President. I wish that the media would choose to spend their time on something of worth that would inform me of the current events in our world and not become a tabloid whiny baby who is crying because they got scooped by the Corpus Christi Times. This is not a political story, it is a story made political by the people involved and the fact that instead of debating issues and things that are of worth to me, a consituent of this country, some political people are choosing to camp on this and make an issue of a non-issue. But I sure like to laugh at the late night show jokes about it.

Speaking of Late night... did anyone see Tom Green on the tonight show last night?

Boop Boop Boop Boop Boo

OH how I laughed.

Ben: whatever, that could have been from memory, really it could have been, because I heard it all in my head as I read over the comment



but it wasn't, yes I took the path of least resistance and googled

last time I didn't admit to googling DRAMATICS occured, so I've learned my lesson about confession

Steve:

I started choking I was laughing so hard at your comment.

I'm better now, I know you were concerned there for a minute and about to call an ambulance.

Poodles: Mop head sounds like a very useful place for them. I'm on board with that.

Did somebody call a wambulance?

You know, I was able to quote alot of the Westley/Wesley v. Vicini(I thought it was Finici!!) But there's alot that I've missed by just watching the movie.

One of my favs though is the " Wait 'till I get going! Where was I?"

I bet the media would have a field day if we had another Presidential Duel! Bring them back I say!
Or Iocaine powder duels as a poor substitute.

Jubal's mocking poodles now? He's no longer my friend. I'm not into the typical poodle haircut, but my parents' teacup poodle with a "puppy cut" is about the cutest thing around. She's so smart. Her name is Audrey Annie. Pitiful, I know.

I stand by any and all anti-poodle comments I have made, am making, or will make

They rank right up there with cats...

Dont hate the player... hate the game

Poodle player it is then?

oh and Jcol remind me to tell you of an old roomies teacup poodle who only walked on three legs (it had four mind you but chose not to use one of them), how that dog survived is beyond me

Jubal = Sworn Enemy.
(but I'm with ya on the cats)

K-T - Audrey runs on 3 legs when she's excited. The one of the back ones (they're interchangable on this) will bounce up and down so much that she stops running on it. Sometimes it half-launches her back half in the air.

I think Eddo has seen this happen.

This might be a first. Sweet, innocent, loving JCol has thrown down the proverbial hammer on Steve and his Poodle hating.

Take heart dear JCol, Abby-girl is nothing like a poodle so I think she still has a special place in Steve's heart, now if she was a poodle there might not have been the hamburger patty sharing incident.

Don't pick on my pooches.

And yes, Abby is ready for Jubal to come back.

I love that movie!!! I, too could visualize the scene as I was reading it. Simply maahvelous.

Katie, you disappoint me. I was all prepared to bow in submission that you could have typed all that from memory. But no. You googled it. But at least you posted it, so I will not put you in the black book just yet.
