Remember super-hot Westley from The Princess Bride?  Well, apparently he’s dead.  Well, not really dead.  Just mostly dead.  That stage of being dead that makes you all puffy and bloated.



 Just kidding, he’s not dead.  He’s just fat.


See Best Week Ever to make you feel really fucking old see the rest of the cast as they are now.


In other news entirely I leave for Chicago today to go to the mother of all blogging conventions.  I’ll be live-blogging it here and over at Mama DramaFirst pathetic installation is available this morning.

  1. Great, you just ruined the whole movie for me. Now when I look at Wesley all I will see is the fat bloated man trying to be Wesley. Thanks-a-fucking-lot!

  2. God, now I’m going to be hearing those movie quotes in my head all day. And seriously, I don’t think I can channel surf past Criminal Minds without saying “My name is Inigo Montoyo. You killed my father, prepare to die” and then giggling like a 5 year old.

  3. I long ago lost my image of the pure and beautiful Westley, I think it happened when he did that movie with (a much younger) Alicia Silverstone where he lived in her garage and kept watching her lay in her back yard in a bikini until she got so crazy that she started stalking him.

    P.S. My maid-of-honor speech at my sister’s wedding started like this: Mawidge. Mawidge is whot bwings us togever today. . .

  4. Looks like he filled up with Fire Swamp gas. Or perhaps it’s an allergic reaction to the Iocane powder. Either way, looking at Cary makes my eyes fight to the pain.


    I just watched that L&O on TiVO!

    I had the same reaction. I cried, well not literally but inside.

    I could barely recognize him!

    WESTLEY oh WESTLEY wherefore art thou WESTLEY?!?!?!

    I adore Princess Bride. Hands down one of the best movies ever.

  6. that is depressing. fucking depressing – that horrid, bloated, slightly I-smell-something-funny look out of my brain..

    I has just finished coming to terms with the fact that I’m sitting on my balcony with only a glass of water – no beer, no wine – and being content with the sunset, the breeze, the birds…and now this. sigh. where’s my bottle opener…?

  7. I saw him a few years ago in “An American Princess” story.. he looked good.

    It might be just the picture — or, he could be on prednisone for some sort of ailment.

  8. Oh poor Westley is dead. I’ll never be the same.

    ps. did you ever get here? Didn’t see you at the bar last night

  9. Nooooo!! Oh, inconthievable for real! Fantasy crushed…sniff…

    LOL at J. Kevin Tumlinson’s comment!!

  10. Dear Wesley,
    When the people ask you to clean up the leftovers, I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

    And enough with the “as you wish” shit.


  11. Why do I get the urge to dodge that car that seems to be coming right at me everytime I visit? Could you reposition your masthead/banner because I have a bad case of “whiplash-to-the-right” trying to get out of its way.
    Sad picture. I hope he’s not sick.

  12. Oh Westley! No!

    At least being the Dread Pirate Roberts was keeping him in shape…now he’s off the ship and it has all gone to hell.

  13. Eeps…maybe he’s being an endorsement for the Simpsons Movie. Okay to me though, just gotta keep the focus on those gorgeous eyes. 😉

  14. OMG…no just no.

    It seems like the pretty boys go the way of fat bloated little lips face, unfortunately. Either that or they turn out to be gay.

  15. You lie! That fat thing is not my sweet Wesley! What curse have you placed on my handsome prince? I will never forgive you for this one, I swear.

  16. Ahhhh. What a relief. Now I know it’s not just the guys I myself picked out who turned into pumpkins. And I must say, I think he’s still a good looking fellow, in need of bigger hair and some eyebrow-enhancement cream. And we all know how photogenic a straight-on full-out flash is. Shame on you all, just wait 20 years. You’ll all look much worse. The difference between you and him will be, he will stay famous.

  17. He’s definitely *not* listed in our assets …

    Damn. Just plain old damn.

  18. Oh No, I just found this blog and I love it and I love you all and then bammm I find you all doing this horrible fat-shaming. Damn, double damn, break my heart.

    (1. I am fatter than Wesley in that picture. There’s nothing wrong with being old and puffy. I’m fat and that’s okay. 2. I wrote this post 8 years ago. You have eight more years of stuff to be offended by so please pace yourself because I even offend myself sometimes. It’s a gift and a curse. More of the second, really. 3. I don’t have a #3 but it felt like there should be a 3. ~ Jenny)

  19. Clever, crazy, wonderful, amazing, entertaining, insightful, helped me through dark thoughts in ways you can’t even begin to know Jenny; I wrote ” Oh No, I just found this blog and I love it and I love you all and then bammm I find you all doing this horrible fat-shaming. Damn, double damn, break my heart” … and …
    1/ I actually did binge read backward through 8 years of your stuff before I hit the July 26, 2007 entry and I really do love your writing and your cool stuff too.
    2/ Can I please plead temporary insanity lead me to besmirch your blog with my first ever Interweb comment, clearly taking my own self/sensitivities too seriously. Stuff/things/life/stupidities >>>>> read you and your lovely followers >>>>>>hit one thing that triggered something>>>>> cried/vented/didn’t keep my internet perspective about me
    3/ There is always a number three but I’m pretty sure the Mad Hatter took it.
    Thank you for taking the time to write

    (Completely normal reaction and I totally love that you felt comfortable enough to comment. I struggle a bit with body acceptance myself (I was anorexic and bulimic in college) but now I try to love my curves. I think some people are uncomfortable with me using the word “fat” even if I’m using it for myself as a way to laugh at something that’s so superficial and I can understand because it’s such a loaded word. I only recently got to the point where I’m comfortable calling myself fat and not really meaning it in a negative way. I’d rather be a little fat, actually. It fills in my wrinkles. That’s probably just as insulting to people dealing with age issues. Honestly, I pretty much try to destroy all the negative words by using them all on myself in a nonjudgmental way. It’s totally okay to feel the pain behind those words, but it’s so freeing to accept them as adjectives that aren’t necessarily negative. Fat, crazy, old, weird…I’m taking all of those words back and I’m loving them all. Now pass me the cheesecake and my pills. ~ Jenny)

  20. I intended to put you a little bit of word to finally say thanks yet again for these superb techniques you have documented here. It’s certainly incredibly open-handed of you to grant unreservedly all a few people would’ve offered as an ebook in order to make some cash for themselves, most importantly given that you might have done it in the event you decided. Those points in addition acted like the good way to fully grasp most people have the identical dream really like my personal own to learn somewhat more in terms of this issue. I am sure there are lots of more fun periods up front for many who browse through your blog post.
