Ah, Mr. T.
Who here actually owns a copy of Mr. T’s after-school special entitled “Mr. T: Be Somebody or Be Somebody’s Fool”? Nobody? I do, and it’s one of the worst thing you’ll ever see. It’s full of helpful topics, like how to deal with anger, how to dress in bad eighties clothing, and how to breakdance. It’s even got a segment dealing with peer pressure featuring, you guessed it, New Edition. And have you heard Mr. T rap?
Okay, well that’s sort of out there. So who’s read the Mr. T autobiography “Mr. T: The Man With The Gold”? Anybody? Well I owned that too, until a “friend” stole it from me. That book is filled with useful Mr. T knowledge, such as the real deal with those combat boots and the details of T’s upbringing in the 'hood. It also shares where the “Mr.” in Mr. T came from.
Maxim magazine gives out a golden Mr. T award. TVLand marketed a Chia Mr. T. TVLand also syndicates the A-Team. Clubber Lang predicts pain. Did I mention the first Wrestlemania?
And if you want to see a Mr. T cereal cameo, go watch “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”.
