Mr. T And Snickers to Offend Again?


Uh Oh. The Wimpy Swimmers of America cause group is about to get their undies in a twist. As will, no doubt, Bob Garfield. Yes, after its Speedwalker ad offended gays (and Bob Garfield), which we never quite understood, Snickers is out with another Mr. T ad which takes on wimpy "toe dippers" who cower at the thought of swimming in water that isn't a perfect 85 degrees.

"You makin' me mad, sucka!"

"It's time to get in the pool, fool!"

"Take that, toe dipper!"

"I hate flying so this better be the last time I hear you crying!"

"Get some nuts!"

Yea, baby! Classic Mr. T.

What a guy.

You gotta love Mr. T. I just got his voice for my GPS because of this. I got it from a company called Navtones over on

they do real celebrity voices for GPS and with Mr. T being the cool, kind soul he is I hope I have done my bit to support him. Not only that, the voices are danm funny and makes my drive hysterical!

Nice going T. Now give me them gold teeth!

Hey, Steve: Notice they strategically inserted a special lady friend to compliment the wimp in this spot? Guessing this wasn't random; the only other ostensible function she serves is set dressing. But they no doubt have to make sure the cadre of ultra-homo-sensitive freedom fighter have less ammunition this time.
