Ever since Nic Cage as Everyone stopped entertaining us roughly 46 seconds ago, we've been on a vigilant lookout for the next memomenon (that's "meme"="phenomenon") involving celebrities and Photoshop; now, a seeming eternity later, we've found it: Tom Hanks is a Lot of Animals, a photo/chop concept updated daily by a 17-year-old who conceived it as "the stupidest Tumblr I could think of." Well done, anonymous 17-year-old -- and today, because it's Wednesday, the day that we bring you the best of our weird internets world in a random compendium of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with, we salute you. So here you go: eleven images of Tom Hanks as a lot of animals.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
