The cast of The Princess Bride is reuniting to support the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. First, Smokey sent me the link; then a knitting&blog friend in Minneapolis sent it to me. I forwarded the link to Elder Son. He said he donated some money an submitted a comment to the Q&A:

Not a question, but thanks not only for making this perfect movie, but also for then having the artistic integrity to just leave it the heck alone, with no sequel, no prequel, no made-for-TV remake, no gritty reboot, no CGI cartoon adaptation, and no Princess Bride Meets the Pirates of the Caribbean Broadway Extravaganza on Ice.  Anybody who was part of a movie this beloved has to run into plenty of people with bad ideas to make a quick buck off of it, so thanks to all of you for just saying no.

You can chip in here if you want.


I dreamed last night that Kay Gardiner, the Mason half of the due formerly known as Mason-Dixon Knitting, was elected president. She and knitters everywhere were giddy with excitement.

    One of my all-time favorite movies!

  3. such a family favorite. We are sad that Andre the Giant won’t be part of it. Our Fezzik Cat is named for his character you know

  4. I love The Princess Bride! (Though I recently tried to re-read the book and couldn’t get invested in it. I’ll try again later.) That’s an interesting dream, and though I don’t know much about Kay Gardiner I would love to have a knitter in office!

    Great line! But I was looking forward to the Broadway Extravaganza on Ice version….
