It needs the chains. Just ain't Mr. T. without the gold.

Another witty allusion here is to Mr. Coffee, a modern, moderately hi-tech product to which Mr. Tea seems to be a traditional, low-tech response. Sort of like Mr. T using the simple but traditional brute power of muscle and righteousness to confront some intricate but lethal gadgetry.

There is also a rather droll contrast between the anglophile refinement we associate with tea-drinking and the primal force that is Mr. T. Even so, I'm not sure I want to face that mohawk-topped snarl as I sip my Earl Grey.

Hmmm... I agree. Gold chains would be nice. Are there gold plated T-balls and chains?
