Mr. T sheds gold for Katrina victims, immediately loses 100 pounds

Mr. T sheds the goldLawrence Tero (that's Mr. T to you and me) told the critics gathered at the TCA press tour yesterday that he's decided not to wear his signature gold chains anymore. He just felt that, after seeing what the victims of Hurricane Katrina have gone through, his conscience wouldn't let him wear the gold again.

"As a spiritual man, I felt it would be a sin against my God for me to wear all that gold again because I spent a lot of time with the less fortunate," he told the critics gathered in Pasedena as he promoted his new TV Land show I Pity the Fool.

How very thoughtful of T. Of course, he's also 54 years old and has gone through numerous health problems over the last decade or so, so he could also just be... let's say the chains might have been wearing the poor guy down. Just take a look at the picture that accompanied this article in most markets, which was shot four years ago. He's carrying a gold-plated frying pan around his neck! How much must that thing weigh? I'm sure his chiropractor had as much to do with this decision as a sense philanthropy. Good for him either way; the eighties have been over for quite a long time.

Mr. T better not part with that gold. He's like Earth's front line defense against an invasion by the Cybermen!
