Mr Tea Cup

I pity the fool who doesn’t drink their tea from this tea cup.

From Etsy. It’s pink, if that’s not your style the seller also has mugs and stuff.

I Pity the Fool who don’t invest in Gold

What a compelling case for gold investment.

Mr T likes gold because the Bible likes gold. He also carries a maximum of 45 pounds of gold at a time.

Put Mr T in an ad and he’ll sell anything.

Minifigs are great. Especially knitted ones. But if you don’t want to order a customised minifig from brickarms for your A-Team Lego movie you may have to build Mr T piece by piece…

Like this…

There are heaps of these on Flickr.

Including ninja turtles…

Comic book characters…

And transformers…

Shirts of the day: Make a loud noise

I love finding new shirt sites. This one, NoiseBot, is pretty similar to SnorgTees. It comes with the standard “contains material that may offend” disclaimer. Which is funny because shirts are made using material… but here are some of my favourites. You can also buy them as tote bags.

The incredible Laurence Tureaud

Who is Laurence Tureaud you ask… he’s Mr T – the bodyguard/actor/wrestler/reality TV star/face of Snickers/recording artist/kitchenware endorser/Christian/cartoon character famous for roles in the A-Team, the first ever Wrestlemania and Rocky.

He’s been around. He’s an interesting guy. And he’s so diversely talented that there’s a little bit of Mr T to appeal to everybody.
For a starter he’s dead against “your mum” jokes – as this film clip demonstrates…

If that wasn’t your cup of tea – here’s his cartoon from the early 80s…

Here’s Mr T in the kitchen…

Here he is in action in the very first Wrestlemania tagging with Hulk Hogan…

Here’s his “Get some nuts” snickers ad…

And a collection of Mr T’s wise sayings from the A-Team…

And here, finally, for your viewing pleasure, is Mr T’s first fight against Rocky in HD…
