Fake Mr. Ts

Some nicknames are just not available. They have been used and we must respect that. I don't care if your name is Joe Rogers, NO ONE CAN CALL YOU MISTER ROGERS.
You also can't be Uncle Floyd, Cousin Brucie, Doctor Detroit, and under no circumstances can you be Mr. T!

There is one Mr. T and he is a beloved television icon. I don't care if you have been called "Mr. T" since the early 1920’s; the name is no longer yours.

Some people haven't got the message:

I give him credit for selling in bulk. Still, he's not Mr. T.

Here is a Hollywood hot spot. It's a nightclub that was once a bowling alley. Time for a name change, guys. It's not Mr. T's and it's not for bowling anymore. Call it Some Other Guy's Nightclub.

Couldn't you peddle your caffeine under the name Lorenzo Lama's Coffee shop?

I'm not even going to TRY to understand this one.

I-a pity-a the fool-a who-a thinks-a he's-a the man-a with-a the Mohawk-a.

I'm sure you make a mean sandwich, but can you make the A-Team van out run a dozen cops in downtown L.A? Can he get Murdock to stop all that crazy jibba jabba? Can he tell Adrian to "bring her pretty little self to his apartment" right in front of Rocky? I doubt it.


  1. Vincent: Mr. T's my cousin.
    Mia: Mr. T! The actor?
    Vincent: I don't know. I do know my cousin is Mr. T. If he became an actor, I don't know nothin' about that.

    Aw, Man! I wanted to call MYSELF Mr. T!
    Too bad!

    This is the sorrow of Todd

    Interesting. I remember a Mr. T's pizza place in the Canton Ohio area back in the late 80s. No REAL Mr. T there, unfortunatly.

    I'm disappointed that you would make fun of my attempt to help the kids learn their math. I pity the fool who don't know their simple sums.

    In addition to owning all of these companies, Mr. T is also an actor. You should mention that.
