Mr T. Is 60

Fool-pitying actor/celebrity Laurence Tureaud turns 60 today. Remember when he and Hulk Hogan teamed up for WrestleMania and it was, like, the biggest thing in the world? You do if you were 12 then. Oh my God, time goes by so fast.

Interviewer: What's your prediction for the fight? … Clubber Lang: Pain!

@RonMwangaguhung I really urge everyone who hasn't seen Rocky III to seek out that scene and watch it, as it's like the Mr. T Rosetta Stone. Basically, all of his catchphrases are in it, and they sort of make sense in context, eg., Interviewer: Are you angry at Mr. Balboa? Clubber Lang: I'm not mad at him, I just pity the fool!

There was also his dendrocidal maniac phase . . .

I'm simultaneously proud/ashamed that I just learned Mr. T's real name from this post.

@Clarence Rosario Honestly, it had failed to occur to me that he had a real name.

@hman Hey now, let's not get carried away. I may act like an old fart sometimes, but I'm still younger than Balk (not that that's saying much).
