Two Fools Who Need Pity

He’s the one without the mohawk. This is not exactly a Mr. T fan site. It is a Mr. T memorabilia fan site. So if you are looking for a Mr. T bio or his contact information or “Mr.T vs X” you came to the wrong place.

Excellent! May I be the first to say "I pity that poor fool"?

You know, there's an awful lot of jibber on that site, and not nearly enough jabber.

Let's see... +5 points for referencing perineal nostalgia icon, -5 for actual content, and -5 for execution. That leaves us with...

I had (and read) the Mr. T autobiography, and once enjoyed some fine, fine, Mr. T Gold Chain Bubblegum. I also had a Mr T. air freshener in my car--imagine getting in a car that'd been closed up on a hot summer day with Mr. T inside.

Thanks MrMoonPie. If someone can reference a "region between the scrotum and the anus" nostalgia icon, they deserve way more than 5 points.

I once tried to get Mr. T. to sign my Mr. T. Experience record. He was none too pleased. In fact I had to practically wrestle his staff to get it back, then received a stern "you shouldn't come in here to make fun of mr t" lecture (from Mr. T) and I tried to respond that it was homage and that I truly wasn't making fun of him. But in the end he chose to be offended and weird and continue talking about himself in the third person.

True story.

He probably wouldn't want to sign my copy of Be Somebody Or Be Somebody's Fool, either.

In case anyone's interested, here and here are two more Meta threads featuring Mr. T.

And here's a link to Mr. T's autobiography "Mr. T: The Man With The Gold."

I have to brag... yesterday I interviewed to work on Mr. T's new reality show. Watch for it in the fall.

Cartoon Network has started showing the 80's-vintage Mr. T cartoon at some ungodly hour of the morning. I can't say I recommend it, exactly, since it looks like the show's budget was less than ten bucks, but it's still strangely compelling. Well, the "Ninja Mystery" episode was. But that may be due to the unlikely cultural intersection of Mr. T, competitive gymnastics, ninjas, and a really awful alternate-universe Tom Selleck.

(And how can "ninjas" not be recognized by spellcheck? BLASPHEMY!)

Because the plural of "ninja" is "ninja".
