I wanted to vote for The Dread Pirate Roberts but had to settle for Inigo Montoya as second-best.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I agree. The Man in Black, Dread Pirate Roberts, or Wesley (the one with eyes like the sea after a storm), should certainly have been on this list, since he defeated Inigo with the "I am not left-handed" trick (one of the oldest in the book). Clearly, his defeat of Fezzik and Vincini show that he would bring a lot more than mere swordsmanship to any contest.

    Of course, like Inigo, he is motivated by his desire for revenge on Humperdink and to be reunited with Buttercup ... lacking that motivation, I'm not sure he has it in him to defeat any of these blades -- he'd probably rather just ride off into the sunset or agree to serve as their valet.

[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
