I pity the 'do! Would Mr. T really be as powerful a force if he were wearing a construction helmet, raver sunglasses, and a handlebar mustache? Now the world can know.

For the record, there's this "gem" from 2001, although I didn't think the Mr. T. name generator really deserved mention in the FPP.

Raver sunglasses?

Those look like Screech's sunglasses.

He still looks like Mr. T even in the other configurations.

Well, maybe not with the sunglasses, hardhat, and twirly mustache all at once.

Woah, I always imagined him with a more square jaw. I mean the shape of his face was pretty much speculation, right? I just don't think the jawline they came up with was really manly enough for the T.

That seriously needs to be a new flagging option.

If the <IMG> tag weren't turned off this would be inline and not a link.

No, but he'd be a shoo-in for the Village People.

I once worked the phrase "jibba jabba" into a conversation I was having.

SO not doing that again.

I agree about the jawline. Seems like as soon as you take the beard off, he looks kinda tranny. Although, that may have to do with the large quantity of jewelry he is wearing.

I've never really appreciated before how furrowed his brow gets. That's a damn intimidating cranial crevasse. the pucker at the bottom is mesmerizing; the smooth way it curves and squares just above his nose and then explodes all over his forehead, the brilliant pink the pooched skin attains, the flowering symmetry--- it takes my breath away.

I don't want to hear about puckering bottoms in a Mr. T thread, thank you very much.
