Tom Hardy Raps With His Baby. Ovary Explosion, Aisle 1.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | July 27, 2012 | Comments ()


I've been a bit remiss this week in covering the Jackson Family Feud that is, apparently, raging somewhere in Southern California. Mostly because I don't understand it. Here's an expansive flowchart that clarifies nothing. (Neatorama)

Can you identify these classic film outfits? The Back To The Future costume is pretty easy on account of that life preserver, but I will admit I misidentified the bottom one as Tremors...because Tremors is a classic, that's why. (/Film)

This fantastic new trailer for BBC 1 Drama has Ned Stark In Drag. Spoiler Alert: it ain't pretty. (Bleeding Cool)

A group of mates got together every five years to take the same photo over the span of 30 years. I love this sort of stuff and a fun guessing game to play at the top is "which of these fellas will age the best?" It's never who you think. (Laughing Squid)

I don't know if you make a habit of reading our Josh's "TV Gifs Of The Week" column, but you really should. This week's features an extra helping of Kristen Bell and her frequent partner-in-crime Craig Ferguson. (WG)

The founders of Amazon have donated an unprecedented amount of money to The Marriage Equality Campaign. I was worried this would mean I'd have to give up on my five-year anti-Amazon stance, but as my friend Nick pointed out even "Hitler had a canary." So boooooo Amazon, yay Bezos! (The Mary Sue)

Still smarting from the frustrating Season 1 cliffhanger ending on "The Killing?" Well, in schadenfreude news, the slow-burning series has been cancelled. I think that's fantastic because both leads deserve MUCH better material. You know, like unnecessary remakes. (Vulture)

Unreality lists all the movies that make them afraid of babysitters/babysitting. And they forgot Alicia Silverstone's bravura performance in The Babysitter?? Blasphemy. (Unreality)

And have you ever wondered about George RR Martin's opinion on penises and vaginas? I'm sure you have. It's kept you up nights, I expect. Well wonder no longer, folks. He lays it all out there for you. (WG)

Any "Simpsons" fan worth his or her salt can rattle off most of these Ralph Wiggums-isms, but it's a fun way to tool out some time on a Friday afternoon.

And, finally, because I loves ya, here's Tom Hardy, aka Bane, aka Eames (darling) rapping with his infant son.

Joanna Robinson only hates Amazon because they're ruining small, independent bookstores and evading taxes. That's all. Just that. No big.

"The Watch" Review: 20 Years Later, and Ben Stiller Still Doesn't Understand the Role of a Straight Man | Please, Please Tell Me Now: Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Stephanie Johnson

    Tom Hardy is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! And my favorite Ralph-ism has to be when they are in the pool and he says "Somebody took my juice money" LOL

  • logar

    Why is everyone saying Amazon is evading taxes? Odd. It's not Amazon, folks, it's you. Thank goodness for Internet sales tax legislation... I reeeealy want to pay more taxes!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It may not be Amazon directly paying those taxes, but Amazon gains in business by avoiding them.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Can I just say how disappointed I am that there was no live-blogging (or "live" blogging) of the Olympics opening ceremonies? Because that was...some stuff, all right.

  • SoapboxSophist

    I thought, after working with at-risk kids in Detroit, that he was stacking. But with a second, more determined look I realized he had the baby's hands clasped around his thumbs and was just making elaborate gestures. Which was good. But for a moment (and this is horrible) I thought, "My, even the gang signs in the UK are bland."

    The baby! That little guy looked like he was used to the impromptu shows and was thoroughly enjoying himself. My inhospitable womb made purring noises, I swear.

  • the new transported man

    Got through about 10 seconds of Tom Hardy rapping. Woof!

  • Pookie

    I feel sorry for Michael Jackson’s mom as she goes about trying to raise his kids as best she can despite all the infighting going on around her, I mean I’ve seen less treachery at a coup.

  • You think that the sounds made by the woman taping Tom Hardy indicate that she's laughing, but she's actually having an orgasm. And now, I am, too. Thanks, Tom!

  • Jenne Frisby

    And yet you love Adele, who complains bitterly about moving into a different tax bracket (because she's made so much money) and still has her career-saving surgery on the NHS. Just because she benefits doesn't mean anyone else should. Interesting, Joanna.

  • Uncle Mikey

    Adele had her surgery in the US. Why would a singer whose career depended on it have that kind of surgery in the NHS system? Crazy talk.

  • pepper

    cutest daddy-baby combo EVER.

  • Slash

    Men with babies, always a crowd pleaser.

  • Slash

    Amazon won't be evading sales taxes much longer, probably. Congress is considering a law that would levy sales taxes on all internet purchases, regardless of what state the business actually occurs in. I believe it has bipartisan support and of course, state govt. support, because state governments be hurtin'.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    New York state already fought them and won - purchases from Amazon to NY are taxed. (not only that but our tax returns have a line for us to estimate the sales tax that we "missed" throughout the year when purchasing items in other states)

  • BWeaves

    OK, I'm not familiar with Tom Hardy, but the little kid holding onto his dad's thumbs through that entire thing, was precious.

  • AudioSuede

    Mustache flashbacks that make me think of him in Bronson (*terrified shudder*) aside, that video was ab-dorable.

  • SCG

    I can't believe they left out my absolute favorite Ralphism! When the kids are stranded on an island Lord of the Flies style and are out of food, Ralphie eats some berries off a tree or bush and cries "it tastes like burning!" - just the best! Also in that episode the creepy twin girls have this awesome line "We're so hungry, we could eat at Arby's!".

  • melissa82

    Yeah I haven't watched the clip yet but I am SHOCKED that's not on there. I say it all the time...

  • Bert_McGurt

    I actually had a rugby teammate back in the day whose name I did not know for a full two-plus years. He bore such a striking resemblance to Ralph that we simply called him "Wiggum". I eventually found out his real name is Jeff.
    True story.

  • Jenne Frisby

    I had a co-worker who once infamously came to our store Thanksgiving football game and threw up (because he was so hung-over). Henceforth he was known as Ralph, and that's still the default name I give him, five years on. It's weird to think of calling him anything else.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    "And, finally, because I loves ya, here’s Tom Hardy, aka Bane, aka Eames (darling) aka Charlie Bronson rapping with his infant son.

    Please, don't ever forget that one again.

  • What is that gif...Kristen Bell with a WHIP?...I just don't understand...MUST KNOW WHY. LOVE HER. Brain broke.

  • Margrete

    That would be from Reefer Madness.

  • Vi

    Craig Bell is always adorable, they should just do late night television together forever.

  • AudioSuede

    Get Ewan McGregor on there, and you've got a hit.

  • Way to make me regret bumping you out of my Pajiba 10, Mr. Hardy.

  • Jensicola

    They left out the best Ralph-ism ever!? Upon eating fire: TASTES LIKE BURNING. For some reason my husband says this whenever he goes down on me, which is of course, nightly. He is known as the Italian Llama.

    ...aaand scene

  • Captain_Tuttle

    And the other best Ralph-ism ever: "Go banana!"

  • Actually I think it was poison berries, but yeah, leaving out that line was criminal.

  • Nonanonymous

    Tom Hardy raps like Lin Manuel-Miranda and it's really freaking me out.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I spy two Jerome Flynns and a Maisie Williams in that BBC promo as well. I'm sufficiently jealous of anyone with BBC1.

  • MIchael Murray

    Even my ovaries explode when I see Tom Hardy. Lordy, he is the man I always wanted to be.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    My cat's breath smells like cat food.

  • PerpetualIntern

    My cat's name is Mittens

  • Stephanie Johnson

    Why does everybody run from me?

  • There'll Be Pancakes

    I can honestly say this is the first time I've found Tom Hardy attractive. That's the power of a baby holding on to a man's thumbs

  • Nadine


    My favourite part is how chill the kid is, like daddy breaks his mad rap skillz out all the time yo, I am far more concerned with what ever is over to my left because when you're Tom Hardy's kid, you're just cool enough not to give a fuck. By default, bitches.

  • annie

    That video of Tom has been on the net for a while now (the kid is like 4 and looks just like his gorgeous papa), but it NEVER. GETS. OLD.

    And way to kill my Sean Bean crush, Sean Bean.

  • dahlia6

    Most of the men in my family are either coal miners or truck drivers, and my mom and I like to play the game of "who'd look worse in a dress?" Short story condensed, all the men in my family would make very heinous women, but I never realized how much like Sean Bean in drag my Dad would look like in drag. Creepy.

  • annie

    That definitely would kill that crush.
