Idris Elba Tweets Response to Sad Man's Poem, Noting That You're Damn Right It's Good to Be Idris Elba

By Cindy Davis | Celebrities Are Better than You | February 24, 2014 | Comments ()


Last week some poor dude who realized he was not Idris Elba wrote a poem to his girlfriend lamenting that fact. It was adorable and made the internet rounds:


But dude had his moment in the sun; now his moment of glory must be relegated to the past where it belongs because he is—in fact—not Idris Elba.

This man is Idris Elba:


Now go cry in your Cheerios you sad little boyfriend; we’ve got ogling to do.


Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is sorry she’s not Idris Elba ,too.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Idris Elba has become the most delicious troll in the internet.....and this comes from a dude!

  • Torgotronic

    I'm starting to see him as the young, British Samuel L. Jackson.

  • emmalita

    Thanks for the Idris Elba pictures. Was there a story with this? I've forgotten because Idris makes my brain short circuit.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Perhaps this guy just needs to be secure in the fact that he's not Idris Elba?
    I mean, my husband (whom I love) will never be Idris, an I, in turn, will never be Jessica Rabbit. So the key is to relax, and learn to love the Elba.

  • foolsage

    Smooth as silk. What a suave mofo.

  • Even if you realize that Idris Elba is a superior being, at least a part of you as a man needs to carry a little bit of "man, fuck Idris Elba" around with you if want to be wanted by your significant other as much as he is. I'm not saying she still won't get all squirmy for him every once in a while, but dammit, remind her that you can do shit to get her squirmy too, don't just mope around because you're not him. I am a man and I installed a dishwasher that is BARELY leaking! Have sex with me now!

  • abell

    How do you get it to barely leak? The most I've ever achieved has been minor flooding.

  • Absolute, blind, dumb luck?

  • Scooter

    A while back after I discovered and ultimately became completely obsessed with Tom Hardy I received a card from my husband with very similar wording as this poem explaining how he was so sorry that he was not Tom Hardy. too baby, me too!

  • Sars

    HA! Tom Hardy is my freebee! I wouldnt want him to be my boyfriend though, I'd want him to be my dirty side ....friend...

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Thing is, if my wife cheated on me with Idris, I'd be like "Cool! What's he like?" Then again my wife would also ask if I was okay with it first. I'd say "yes. Please give him a handy for me, darling."

  • e jerry powell

    Sorry, no. You have to do that kind of work for yourself. There is no such thing as a legal proxy hand job.

  • Don't forget "make sure to drink plenty of fluids and stretch". I am sure you both want to put your best foot (or other body part) forward, and you don't want her to pull a hamstring (that's Elba's job).

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    But Mr. Elba would also have to personally call me and say "Hello, this is Stringer Bell. I just banged your wife better than you ever shall. Goodbye."

    I'd thank him.

  • thatsmrsnyder

    My wife and I discussed our celebrity freebies list one night, and discovered that Idris Elba's name came up on both.

  • e jerry powell

    I insist that you indulge each other together. And that I get exclusive distribution rights.

  • luthien26

    You sir, have an awesome marriage. :)

  • chanohack

    Someone get the "aware of my effect on women" gif, pronto!

    Damn, even his penmanship is sexy.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, that poet needs to dump his lady friend.
    (I don't think that poem is cute! it's terribly sad.)

  • Bob Genghis Khan

    After he dumps his lady friend he needs to return to fifth grade English.

  • e jerry powell

    She deserves better grammar. All women do.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Normally I would concur, but this essay is fresh in my mind.

    So I try not to judge too harshly.

  • e jerry powell

    See, I can't silence my inner editor; that motherfucker would have to die. I automatically disqualify OKCupid profiles out of hand that have even one spelling error.

    Did I mention that my mother's B.A. is in English? And my dad's degree is in math. It's a problem.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    A word problem, if you will.

    (I'll show myself out.)

  • e jerry powell

    Word to your mother...
