I like Mr. T. Always have, always will, though I’m not honestly sure why. I love the Comcast commercials where he bursts through the wall of that guy’s bathroom to correct his pop culture trivia knowledge. Why? Because any time you can have Mr. T burst through a wall I think you just ought to do it.
So I’m glad to see that Mr. T is now getting his own show on TV Land called, appropriately enough, “I Pity the Fool!” In his own words:
“My show ain’t no Dr. Phil where people sit around crying, ‘What’s wrong with me Dr. Phil? What’s wrong with me Dr. Phil?’ You are a fool! That’s what’s wrong with you!”
“Either you’re a fool or you’re not. You know me, there’s no big or small. If you get on my fool list, that’s it, you know … It’s not a shame to say ‘Hey, I’m falling to the foolish side. I wonder if you could help me because I don’t want to be a fool.’ That’s what we do. We pity the fool, then we help them, then leave the case, and they’re not fools no more.”
That’s good stuff.
