Last month, my wife & I awoke on the couch late at night to the blaring television infomercial featuring Mr. T. hawking the FLAVORWAVE OVEN TURBO.We laughed till we cried at Mr. T's famous utterances and grimaces.

I forgot all about it till a large package arrived yesterday with my name on it. My wife had purchased me a FLAVORWAVE OVEN TURBO as a gift.

I asked my wife what gives, and she spouts off, "your 56 years old and all you ever learned to cook is frozen pizza! It's about time that you hunt & gather your own supper!".

Now I can take a friggin' frozen steak, a hand full of bacon,a potato, and a couple of sausages...throw 'em in the Mr. T. FLAVORWAVE OVEN TURBO...and have a man's meat supper in only 15 minutes.
I am now a gourmet chefarino!


I wondered what happened to Mr. T.. Now I know....he's still makin'
Jacksons!!!



So in appreciation of and respect of & for Mr. T, I present this GeekList celebrating all that is the T !!!!!!

Please add your favorite T movies, shows, pix, or sayings!

From Wiki....[i]T worked as a bouncer after he returned from the army. It was at this time that he created the persona of "Mr. T."

Wiki: His wearing of gold neck chains and other jewelry was the result of customers losing the items, leaving them behind at the bar/night club after a fight, or being removed from the place. A customer would not have to re-enter or even have to see anyone else again if Mr. T wore their jewelry as he stood out front. When a customer came back, their item was readily visible and available with no further confrontations required. Often, the "former" customers did not return.

Wiki:Mr. T managed eventually to parlay his job as a bouncer into a career as a bodyguard to the stars that lasted almost ten years. He protected well-known personalities like Muhammad Ali, Steve McQueen, Michael Jackson, Leon Spinks, Joe Frazier and Diana Ross, charging $3,000 per day.


As a bodyguard, T's business card read, "Next to God, there is no greater protector than I."

While reading National Geographic, Mr. T first noticed the unusual hairstyle, for which he is now famous, on a Mandinka warrior. He decided that adoption of the style would be a powerful statement about his African origin. It was a simpler, safer and more permanent visual signature

In 1980, Mr. T was spotted by Sylvester Stallone while taking part in NBC's "America's Toughest Bouncer" competition—a segment of NBC's "Games People Play."His role in Rocky III was originally intended as just a few lines. His catchphrase, "I pity the fool!", comes from the film, in which he played a boxer facing Rocky Balboa. When asked if he hated Rocky, he replied, "No, I don't hate Balboa, but I pity the fool."

Dude, you forgot the A-Team. B.A. (Bad Attitude) Barackus-hated to fly, always went in 'front door'. And the crux of the greatest generational schism of our time.

sensitive Politcally Correct parent: "Mr. T is a racist stereotype-the black bus driver"

Kid: "What could be cooler thand driving the A-team van?"

Good times
