Friday is Fun Day. It’s ‘I-can-wear-jeans-to-work’ day. It’s a day to share jokes, look forward to the weekend and wind down after a week at full velocity. At least, that’s what I aim for on Fridays. It doesn’t always pan out.
When I worked for The Auction House, I used to send all my friends a special Friday e-mail. Now I think I might have to resurrect that tradition in the form of a Fun Friday post, just to make sure we remember that life isn’t all about envelopes with windows, deadlines and overtime.
Recently, I was talking to Stationery Guy whose son likes saying “I ain’t goin’ in no plane!”, just like Mr T’s alter ego, B A Baracus. Remember him? Big, black and scary with a mohawk and lots of man-bling. The terrifying thing for those of us who remember it from the first time around is that the A Team is having a revival. It’s on Sky TV in the UK and if you’re bored with your current look you might consider buying Mr T disguise sets from all the party stores. Here’s one I found earlier:
Then Wise Woman told me about a friend of hers whose friends dressed him up as Mr T for his stag night. Apparently there was a lot of “I ain’t walkin’ down no aisle!” going on. He did, however, walk down an aisle shortly thereafter, so all that talk did no lasting damage.
The A Team is even influencing fashion. The other day, a trendy guy who works in our building was wearing a tee shirt with a line-up of the four A-Team characters in cartoon form. It was seriously cool, only I was so busy staring at the tee-shirt that I can’t remember which guy he is. I’m now waiting until he wears it again so I can ask where he got it.
But most importantly, there’s the A-Team theme!
In case you still haven’t had enough, you could try a Mr T in your pocket.
Someone has even shown us what happens when Mr T meets a teapot. That must make him Mr Tea. Yes? No? Shut up, foo’…
