Happy Birthday!

Today, we celebrate the birthday of one of my childhood heroes.

Mr. T.

Seriously, I adored The A-Team as a kid. It was a show I watched with my dad (along with other goodies like Mission: Impossible, MacGyver, Dukes of Hazzard and MASH). The A-Team may have been my favorite though.

He's actually a really interesting man, if you take time to read his background.

So, because my mind is completely otherwise blank, let's wish Mr. T a happy birthday today. In his honor, I share this haiku (which I did not write):

Festooned in gold chains,
Mr. T rains down whoop-ass.
I pity the foo.

Great haiku (for whoever did write it) and yes I think Mr T is an interesting man.

The best part about him is that he was all into the bling even before bling was cool!

I pity the foo in the new A-Team movie that is playing Mr. T's character. Those are some big shoes to fill.

I watched all those same shows, although I admit MacGyver was my personal fave!

You know they're coming out with a movie, the A-team? It looks action packed and funny...wonder if it'll be any good?

It's also Hubby's birthday today! He didn't know he shares the day with Mr. T.
