->''"When it comes to kitschy 80's icons, none is more kitschy than Mr. T. Anyone who grew up in the 80's has got to have a ton of nostalgic affection for the guy. This is despite the fact that T has no talent to speak of. No, people love Mr. T '''because''' he's Mr. T. He's famous solely for his personality, and that personality is '''[[CrazyAwesome completely and utterly insane]]'''."''

[[DescribeTopicHere Describe Mr. T here,]] [[YouFool fool]]!

Mr. T (first name Mister, middle name Period, last name T; ''birth'' name Laurence Tureaud) (May 21, 1952-) is an American actor known for his roles as B. A. Baracus in the 1980s television series ''Series/TheATeam'', as boxer Clubber Lang in the 1982 film ''RockyIII'', and for his appearances as a professional wrestler. Mr. T is also well-known for his distinctive mohawk hairstyle, for wearing large amounts of gold jewelry, and for his tough guy image. He starred in the reality show ''I Pity the Fool'', shown on TV Land, the title of which comes from his catchphrase from ''Rocky III''. Recently seen as Officer Earl Devereaux in ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', and as himself, dispensing advice to the ''World's Craziest Fools'' on [[TheBBC BBC Three]]. He's also starred in a few commercials for ''WorldOfWarcraft'' and Snickers, and [[WesternAnimation/MisterT even got his own animated TV show.]] And he's a big MommasBoy. Just [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas don't try and mock him for it]]. It won't end well. Also, you are now reading this article in Mr. T's voice, suckah!

In March 2014, the {{WWE}} honored T by inducting him into their Hall Of Fame, for bringing pro-wrestling and Wrestlemania to the attention of wider audiences in the 80s.

Mr. T fought cancer at one point, much to the cancer's regret. What kind of cancer you may ask? [[{{Irony}} T-cell lymphoma]], fool!

Mr. T is to [[RuleOfCool cool]] as ChuckNorris is to {{Badass}}. [[MemeticBadass He could even defeat]] [[ChuckNorris Chuck Norris,]] as shown by [[InsaneTrollLogic the following train of logic:]]

[[folder:Warning: Silly Math]]
In ''Rocky III'', Mr. T, after half a training montage and one "rising through the ranks" montage (equal to one-and-a-half training montages) defeated a Sylvester Stallone that had gone through two successful training montages and a championship montage (normally equal to two training montages, here only equal to one-and-a-half). One training montage later, Stallone defeated Mr. T, ergo:\\
2 x Mr. T > 3.5 Stallone\\
2 x Mr. T < 4.5 Stallone

Chuck Norris is a member of and embodies the National Rifle Association. The NRA which considers SylvesterStallone (as well as Danny De Vito) a threat to their entire organization, therefore Norris considers Stallone a threat, ergo [[EEqualsMCHammer Base Stallone]] ≥ [[ChuckNorrisFacts Base Chuck Norris]]. Granted, Chuck Norris would have the sense to train, [[{{Metaphorgotten}} and we're not even sure how we came to assume any of this to begin with.]] Sorry about that, fool!

However, many years later, the world saw the introduction of [[http://www.amazon.com/Mrs-Tea-HTM1/dp/B000R06QTC Mrs. Tea]].[[/note]]

And make sure that, whatever you do, you [[{{Digitiser}} stay AWAY from Mr. T's BINS]].
