** What Vizzini did was actually pretty damned clever, even if it didn't work. Vizzini knew that since Westley knew full well which goblet was poisoned, if Vizzini chose the right goblet, Westley wouldn't ''actually'' drink the remaining poisoned one, leaving Vizzini with no way to actually kill Westley and win the battle. So Vizzini switched the goblets. If he chose wrong, Westley would refuse to drink, giving away where the poison is and saving Vizzini's life. If Vizzini chose ''right'', Westley would happily drink thinking he would be safe, and Vizzini would drink ''knowing'' he would be safe. The fact that Westley knew where the poison was meant the battle was rigged against Vizzini from the start even if there ''had'' only been poison in one goblet, and Vizzini figured out the only way the battle of wits could have still ended in Westley's death.
