If your story had only said, “Pity fools, respect mothers”, I would have ‘liked’ it anyway!

I hope he got your vote on DWTS.


#4

What is this even…

I’m’ troubled by that linked KFC Ad. Troubled.

Huh - no idea he was on that.

I wish he had done more after the 80s. IIRC he had some cancer issues, and once I saw him on that horrible TBS(?) religious channel. But he was a fun character actor!

Some marketers come up with great ad campaigns. Some don’t.
I think we know which one we have here, (adds KFC to “do not ever buy” list).


#11

I’m just thinking that if that… thing and the Burger King creepoid ever teamed up…

Appetites Will Be Lost


#12

They’ve been funding some really weird stuff as ads recently.

#15

Yeah, kinda already there because of the food’s … flavor. Also texture, odor, and aspect.

Met Mr. T when he had a gig as a title-fight weekend greeter in Vegas about 20 years ago, nice guy, very funny and friendly- this was pre-phone/selfie days so pardon the image quality… one of many Vegas-centric brushes with fame I’ve enjoyed over the years. Love that “gold plate” and what can I say, I still love the Meat Puppets too.


#17

Is that a whole gold plated apple pie?

#19

I whish they would produce an alternative timeline of The Walking Dead with Mr T.
Could be fun!

Why alternative? Why not stumble upon an enclave set up by the A-Team? They had mad maker skills. They probably could make a set up 10x better than the professor on Gilligan’s island.
