The Chinese-Princess Bride Connection

Every week I receive an e-mail with the Chinese word or phrase of the week, just out of curiosity. Today, the character I received is "jen ai," or "true love." Unsurprisingly, my first thoughts came from the classic movie "The Princess Bride." Allow me to illustrate (if you remember the Bishop who is to marry Prince Humperdinck and Buttercup):

"Mawwage. Mawwage is what bwings us togethew today. Mawwage,
that bwessed awwangement, that dweam within a dweam....And wove, twue wove, wiww fowwow you fowevah--So tweasuwe youw wove..."

Well, perhaps that wouldn't be everyone's first association, but it certainly--and unexpectedly--brought a smile to my face this morning. :)
