He performed slam poetry about Full House on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Hi, yes, I said slam poetry about Full House.

Awesome thing # 7

Some kid saw Tom Hanks at a restaurant and asked to take a picture with him. But Tom Hanks doesn't "do" boring pics. So instead he let the kid steal his glasses, pretend to be wasted, and then he played along with the scenario because...wait for it...HE'S AWESOME!!!

Awesome Thing # 8

He said the F word — no, not floogle, the other F word — on Good Morning America. This is awesome because people saying curse words on live TV is always a great time.

His speech at Michael Clarke Duncan's funeral. It was sweet, funny, and perfectly done.

Awesome thing #13

HE SHOWED HIS TRUE FACE. Just kidding, it's just a computer effect doing that to his eyes. This one is awesome because...oh, Tom. You are so silly and amusing and I love you.
