Jake spotted this bit of silly fun at a pizzeria in New York.
Tom Hanks trash can
laugh out loud
wow!! i will never look at the word, T.Hanks again in the same way!!! pure lollage
Has Rob Cockerham been to NYC lately?
Of course it’s next to a rack of The Onion.
Vinnie’s Pizzeria on 9th and Bedford in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
It has apparently been modified slightly since I saw it april last year.
It’s located in Vinnie’s pizzaria in Greenpoint, NYC. Delicious pizza, btw – trying the Bacon Chicken Cheddar Ranch.
I’ll take The rapist for 200, Alex.
I love wordplay like this. Good times.
T.Hanks for this, I really needed it. What a day.
Tom Hanks in the context of a pizzeria takes me back to the Hollywood Pizzeria somewhere in remote Ecuador in the mid-90s. They advertised a Tom Hanks Pizza on their typewritten menu, but the H had been mistyped as a W. It certainly made the eyes water.
Great Pizza at Vinnies, vegan friendly too.
Great stuff, but what’s with the Obama 8×10 on top?
#13 Thermidor: “mistyped” – at least you HOPE it was a typo.. :D
Thank you, Tom Hanks.
Yeah! Vinny’s in Williamsburg. Best Pizza I’ve had in NYC. gotta gotta the honey dijon or buffalo chicken pizza. amazing!
Wow – why have I never spotted Thanks / T.Hanks before?!?
I love this so much, I may have to start carrying various sizes of self adhesive Tom Hanks pictures and stick-on-dots.
I’ve seen the same thing (or very similar I guess…) at a coffee shop in Portsmouth NH!
Hey I’ve seen that! It was at some hipster pizzeria… made me laugh.
Looks like maybe a picture from Boosom brothers or maybe Turner and Hooch days. Nice pickup of the Obama pic. I didn’t notice that at first.
i love the person who did this!what a cutie.
He’s India’s answer to Brian Dennehy.
@17: Here, feed him some hundreds and thousands. He loves them.
Thats been floating in the internet for years, still funny though.
I lol everytime I think of “I’ll take the rapist for 200, Alex.” Hee.
As a former Vinnie’s Pizzeria delivery boy, I feel that its my job to let you know that if you’re in Brooklyn, you can swing by this place at North 9th St. and Bedford Ave in Williamsburg and pick up some T.Hanks stickers or shirts (along with delicious, delicious pizza). If you’re not, you can find ’em online on facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Williamsburg-NY/Vinnies-Pizzeria/116528981396?ref=nf ) and soon to be found at http://www.vinniesbrooklyn.com .
T.Hanks gettin it done. Fabulous!
Cue lawsuit and/or cease-and-desist letter from Hanks’ lawyers/agents in 3…2…1…

A burger joint in Reykjavik has this as well
