In the 1987 classic the Princess Bride, Vizzini was in a battle of wits to the death with the Man in Black. When Vizzini drank from his glass, and thought the Man in Black drank poison, Vizzini told the Man in Black that he had fallen victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia". This Princess Bride t-shirt features an image of Vizzini and includes the slightly less-known blunder, "never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line". This led to Vizzini laughing, until he fell over dead from drinking poison.
