Yo, bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is Mr. T and I defy you to read his tweets in anyone else’s voice but his.  I once interviewed Mr. T on my old TV show many years ago.  Let’s see how much more awesome he is.


December 12th:  “Can a fiddler crab really play the fiddle?”

Can Mr. T make iced tea?  Has he met Ice-T?  Would Mr. T serve Ice-T iced tea?

December 14th:  “They took prayer out of schools and guns came in. Let us pray!”

Dear Lord, send everyone a bulletproof vest.

December 19th:  “To all the students at James Hedges Elementary School (), Chicago, IL., I had a great time! Keep up the good work! Mr. T”

Remember kids, Mr. T singlehandedly won the Cold War by punching Dolf Lungren.  Plus he did this.

December 23rd:  “Merry Christmas…Happy Birthday JESUS!”

Sounds like he was surprised at the end of that tweet.

December 27th:  “Have a blessed New Year!”

Trying, Mr. T.  And I also pray that this is the year that you get the rest of the letters for your name.

December 31st:  “Have a happy, a safe and a blessed New Year!”

I pity the fool that don’t have a happy, safe, blessed New Year!

January 10th:  “Jack be nimble, Jack be quick…wait a minute, where’s Jack’s parents, letting him play with fire?”

That’s because Jack is high on drugs.  Don’t do drugs, kids.  Or you’ll be jumping over candlesticks too!

January 13th:  “What would happen if a Fool wore a thinking cap?”

Kaboom!  Mind blown.

1 hour ago:  “Happy birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you for all that you have done!”

Not to diminish MLK Day, but a Mr. T Day would be amazing.  We could all dress up in gold jewelry, give ourselves mohawks and pity fools all day long.

Okay, let’s rate Mr. T’s tweets.  I give Mr. T a 7 for Mustness, a 9 for Insanity and a 10 for Style.  Thanks an overall score of 8.6, but I’m rounding that up to a 9 because I want to fool!  Follow T!
