He may take some embarassing gigs, but Mr. T has always been a class act in my book.

He appeared without his trademark gold chains on several talk shows after Hurricane Katrina, saying he had given them to one of the relief charities because it just didn't feel right to be walking around with that much around his neck when that many people were in that great a need.

I've seen that he has some back, now, in more recent appearances, but I can't blame him too much: they're part of his stage persona, and the advertisers and such that pay for "Mr. T" probably expect it. It's still cool that he took the opportunity to help raise awareness of the Katrina situation.
I second his decision re: the chains. Apparently he also dons them for charity events.

But what about this "wow... instead of turnin' the food, you turnin' the air!" - erm... how long have fan forced ovens been around for - hardly anything new!

Hey, they're going to need a new ShamWow guy pretty soon. Go for it, T!

Sure, but after seeing his mugshot plastered everywhere, I doubt he's going to be the pitchman for much longer.

Enter Mr. T:

"Get your tongue bit by a hooker? Look how much blood ShamWow absorbs, fool!"

There's not a hooker alive who could beat up Mr T.

I think he actually looks pretty good for 56.

Ran into him and his lady once in a downtown Chicago parking garage. I told my friend I saw a license plate that said "MR T" but he didn't believe me until we saw him (he was in a track suit...this was around '88 or so).

Re: Mr T is desperate for cash/sunk to a new low

25 years ago, a crack actor become really famous by starring in a popular 80's TV series. His career eventually disappeared into the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted a paycheck, he survives by making shitty infomercials . If you have a product, a grill not even George Forman an sell, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire ... Mr. T.

The concept of an overly feminine man being mocked hit a little too close to home?

I miss the days when Mr T only put his name to genuinely quality products. Like the Mr T comic books.

Pelting an effeminate-walking man with Snickers and telling him to "get some nuts" is SO funny.
