Mr. T Takes the Stage

July 13, 2006 12:48 PM

The bombastic Mr. T was on stage promoting his TV Land advice-makeover show “I Pity the Fool.” He’s the biggest hit of the Press Tour.

Q: “Mr. T, why do you pity the fool?”

A: “You pity the fool because you don’t want to beat up the fool! Pity is between sorry and mercy. That’s why I pity the fools — you give them another chance, you don’t have to beat them up … People are all: ‘Help me Dr. Phil! Help me Dr. Phil!’ No! you’re a fool!”
