I dunno. I chuckled a lot....from the wincing footballer, to Mr. T's asking to feel the PAIN and chucking Snickers, to the Nuts innuendo. It works for me. It's pretty out there. The world has missed Mr. T.

And I pity the fool that disagrees with me...

i always think these kitsch cult idol worshipthings (hasselhoff, chuck norris etc), are a bit stupid and pointless and really are the lowest common denominator. on the other hand, i used to love the 'mr.t v everything' cartoons:

mibbe someone should do a Mr T v Optimo, or Mr T v Mingo Go, i reckon she could take him

I haven't aged in 20 years either!!!

However, I have never enjoyed eating Snickers, but if they paid me to endorse it and got to chuck one at a wingeing footballer, I would happily pretend to love Snickers.

I pity the fool who thinks I can't take on Mr. T.
