In a new interview with the Des Moines Register, we learn a few things about Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas: He hates avocados with a passion, he wants to be a point guard for the Houston Rockets, and his favorite movie is The Princess Bride.
While it's hard to understand why someone could hate avocados so much, the latter answer left the door wide open for the most obvious joke people could make about his favorite movie: That his choice was inconceivable—the word often repeated by the 1987 classic's minor villain, Vizzini.
Leave it to Twitter to repeat the same joke.

@JesseFFerguson You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.— Inigo Montoya (@iaminigomontoya) October 25, 2013
We get it.
