‘Fool’ Is The Proper Way To Greet Mr. T

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Mr. T doesn’t mind when people call him a fool – in fact, that’s the greeting he prefers.

The A-Team icon insists he never gets sick of fans calling him a fool after his famous catchphrase, “I pity the fool!” even though his show was cancelled more than 20 years ago.

He laughs, “I hear ‘I pity the fool’ all the time and I’m like, ‘I pity the fool too.’ It’s the greatest catchphrase of all time and I thank God every day for giving it to me!”

But being called a fool can be confusing for Mr. T’s fans.

In fact, he’s had fans almost get in fights with each other because one thought the other was insulting Mr. T by calling him the F-word.

As he puts it, “People yell ‘fool’ but it’s not a derogatory thing. It’s like, ‘Oh, hey man!’ Everyone has a fool in their life they can pity!”

Mr. T will lend his voice to the animated flick, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, which hits theaters later this year.
