Tom Hanks's 'Full House' Poetry Slam


I needed something different to do than watch T.V. when I came home from work tonight, so I scoured the Internet for literary news. Tom Hanks came up. Surprisingly. He did a poetry slam on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'.


It brings me back to pizza Friday's and TGIF with my parents and little sister in the glorious 90's. I admit I cringe whenever I catch a clip of Full House, but I loved it at the time. Bless my parents for sitting through those episodes.

Tom's bit also reminded me a little of Mike Myer's in So I Married An Axe Murderer with his Woman poem. What a great movie!

The links are below. Enjoy!

I love those poetry pieces that Jimmy Fallon has on their show, they're hilarious!
Kids tend to like not so great shows, I know looking back at Sabrina the Teenage Witch I'm surprised my dad didn't shut it off. But it's clean, so I guess that's what keeps it on.

Hahahaha that was pretty amusing. :-D

Yeah I also watched a few things that I loved at the time, but that I cringe when I see it now.
