Previously: A Pie for Todd Akin.
Ann Friedman is feeling bromantic.
ann friedman, pie charts, the barack obama bill clinton hug, dnc, bromances, pdas
Karl Urban & Karl Urban
I'm rubbing my hands together like a villain right now.
@yeah-elle I like your style.
@yeah-elle Eeeeeexcellent choice.
Tupac hologram and Ronald Reagan hologram?
Tupac hologram and Wolf Blitzer hologram
Ronald Reagan hologram and Darth Sidious hologram?
@Inkling Obi-Wan Kenobi ghost and Tupac hologram?
Tupac hologram & Tony Danza?
I just watched this and it was so excellent. Tupac said that Tony Danza was his favorite prison correspondence. Amazing.
@Tuna Surprise Elizabeth Taylor hologram and Phyllis Diller hologram
@jen325 WHAT THEY ARE LADIES. Sorry folks, I got sidetracked at work and forgot what I was doing.
Chris Pine and Chris Evans?
Donald Glover and.. everyone.
Jon Snow and Neville Longbottom. So many feelings!
ETA: shiiit. Harry Potter and Jon Snow? "Orphans, we're orphans.."
Ari Shapiro and Ta-Nahesi Coates
Jeremy Renner and Daniel Craig
Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, lending gravitas to everywhere they hug.
Idris Elba and Jon Hamm, sucking all of the handsome masculinity out of the room.
@RK Fire I was gonna say Robb Stark and Jon Snow, and then remembered it DID happen, and I am pretty sure is what sparked all of the Robb/Jon porn on the internet forever
@Megano!: I really wanted to mention any combo of Robb/Jon/Theon but as you mention, that is pretty much the beginning of the first season. I figured it was safer/more creative to do some cross-series pollination.
p.s. I am pretty sure the casting of Richard Madden went a long way--I know it did for me!
John McAvoy and Ewan MacGregor
[last one I promise]
@RK Fire no no no, Jay Smooth and Ta-Nehisi Coates!
(In my head they meet up for coffee every week, like, smartypants-commentator-NYC-bros, so this hug is totally comfortable and natural and nbd.)
@stonefruit: I could get behind this!
@RK Fire Only if I'm in the middle. Mmmm. (Sorry, honey.)
@RK Fire I need you to know that your every suggestion on this thread was accompanied by an enthusiastic fist-pump on my part.
@wee_ramekin: Thank you! I was feeling really inspired this morning.
@all: Also, I meant *James* McAvoy. James.
@Bittersweet Oops, this was supposed to be in reference to the crag-tastic Renner/Craig hug.
@RK Fire That's okay, James McAvoy kind of makes me forget my own name. He's so charming that my brain just kind of turns to hot mush.
@Bittersweet: There are so many sandwichy options! I can't blame you.
@RK Fire oh god, my loins might just spontaneously combust at that one (JMcA and EMcG)
To comfort myself over the fact that none of those embraces have (yet) occurred, I'll just go watch the best bromantic embrace that DID actually happen.
@Woman Laughing Alone With Boas Onions, there are onions in that link.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy
@Sarah H.: Are we allowed to suggest bro-hugs that have probably already happened? I guess the question allows that.
@Sarah H. Oh there's pictures of this all over tumblr. Both real and 'shopped. ...I know because a friend told me...
@Lisa Frank I'm going to need you to...ask your friend...for the best links, please. You know, if you keep in touch with that friend. ;)
@sovereignann@twitter I'm warning you: this stuff is crack. http://arthurandeames.tumblr.com/
@Lisa Frank: all the thumbs up to you!
Me and Kanye.
@Reginal T. Squirge I smell a Kickstarter campaign!
I smell disappointment.
I'm happy with Fred Willard + anybody. Maybe Harry Shearer?
@frigwiggin Harvey Fierstein?
I hate to deviate from the bromance appreciation going on here, but is anyone else curious as to what sort of filling would go in an actual hug pie? It sounds like it'd be great comfort food, whatever was in the pastry.
No idea but please cut me a slice.
@Jinxie: My first thought was mac and cheese. Maybe spicy fried chicken and mac and cheese.
/what is wrong with me today?
@RK Fire Whoa...you mean, like a fried chicken/mac n'cheese pot pie or something...? AMAZING. YES. THAT is a hug pie.
@RK Fire Macaroni pie is an actual thing here in Scotland and it disturbs me every time i see it.
I love carbs but i do not love them that much!
@Jinxie: YES THAT IS WHAT I AM SUGGESTING.
[I guess a saner idea of this is some sort of Shepherd's Pie..]
@Chills: In the US we have a baked potato pie (thank you, Unos) and fried mac and cheese balls. Those are definitely items to be eaten sparingly.
@RK Fire I think there needs to be a dinner version and also a dessert version.
@Ophelia I am for this! I imagine a hug pie to have some sort of gooey, fruity, but not terribly tart guts. like a buttermilk peach pie? or a warm spiced apple and cajeta hand pie? because the crust is hugging the filling? I am having too much fun thinking of these. I like food more than boys, I guess.
@RK Fire: this isn't EXACTLY what you mean, but it does sound pretty great http://margaritastewart.blogspot.com/2009/10/dino-bbq-mac-and-cheese.html
@RK Fire Macaroni pie is literally macaroni cheese in a pastry pie. It blows my mind that someone thought it was a good idea and then mass manufactured it!
@Chills: If it's any consolation--and I'm not sure if it is--I was imagining macaroni and cheese layered into a deep dish pizza pie crust.
Oh dear, someone has already done this.
@all, i did not need this thread after half a bottle of wine, thank you very much. hrmph. (no really, thank you.)
OMG. This made me feel so warm and bubbly
Lord Grantham & Matthew Crawley. They are in a sweet spot right now and who knows what Season 3 will bring.
@teaandcakeordeath In the same vein, how about Branson and Lord Grantham? Or Carson and Mr. Bates?
Hmm I've had reserved feelings about Branson since he described nursing as 'bringing randy men hot drinks'.
Now Carson and Lord Grantham is so good it should have been my original post.
Carson/Lord Grantham hug!!! This times a million!!!
Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad, hello
Though I guess a piechart that's just 100% the same thing would be kinda boring to draw
I'll take a Bill Callahan + Jonathan Richman hug pie pls & thx.
@klaus Ooh or Bill Callahan and Will Oldham??
@yeah-elle only if I can be in the middle of that hug
@klaus BILL CALLAHAN FOREVER OMG. [Can I request (Smog] era, though?]
Ira Glass & Jon Stewart needs to be the whole pie. Because, let's be honest, that hug could probably right 63.2% of the world's ills were it to take place.
@iwearaFEZnow I SECOND THAT
@freelee THIRDED especially if i can be the filling
Michael Fassbender & Viggo Mortensen
@a tomato going round round Vincent Cassel and Viggo Mortensen.
(Basically I think they should never stop hugging.)
@a tomato going round round I was going to say Fassbender and Colin Farrell, but Viggo is good, too.
@a tomato going round round Me Sandwich, Part 2!
(My husband is a very understanding man.)
@hands_down Colin Farrell and Colin Firth, because the latter would look startled and uncomfortable with the entire thing. Firth would totally be Firthing Farrell.
David Tennant and me wearing a finger mustache <3
@Inkling David Tennant and Matt Smith! But that would probably break something, like the space-time continuum, right?
@Inkling David Tennant and Billie Piper. (Billie is a guy's name, so it counts, right?!)
YES THIS FOREVER
But how awesome was that episode with Matt Smith and the TARDIS was put inside a woman and they *SPOILER ALERT KIND OF* kissed and it made me all sparkly-eyed (though a good, strong pash would have been appreciated), possibly as good as when *MORE SPOILERS (FROM GWTW)* Scarlett finally marries He Who Must Not Be Received and they have the most fabulously sexy sex?
PS: Rhett Butler/Ashley Wilkes Hug?
PPS: all the thumbs up for a Matt Smith/David Tenant bromance because they are both so devilishly handsome in a way that's not immediately apparent but it does grow on you?
But also, Matt Smith doesn't think Karen Gillam is pretty!?! I saw somewhere in a news article that he gave her a 6/10 for hotness or something insane like that?
Clive Owen and Tom Hardy? It would be a very...growly hug.
Dick Cheney and Death? Death is a guy right?
@katiemcgillicuddy Yes, except for Bob Fosse.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan ANYONE?
@Dirty Hands I don't even need to go to Google to know that's already been written, and more than once.
I was hoping (for Melis) that they'd had a real-life hug that inspired this post in the first place.
@Inkling OH GOD I forgot it was written on this very site D: D: D:
@Dirty Hands But what if their wieners accidentally touched? Wouldn't that make them GAY?
@Sarah H.: The call is coming from inside the house!
@wee_ramekin Can never forget. WILL NEVER FORGET.
@wee_ramekin thanks for the memories.
David Bowie and Kanye West
@Lucienne Tony Leung and Andy Lau
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Donald Glover
Me and David Bowie and Kanye West.
@Lucienne OMG-D, yes, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Donald Glover. Perfection. With Danny Pudi sort of flitting around wanting in.
@Lucienne Werner Herzog and Bill Clinton, Shahrukh Khan and Lupe Fiasco.
@stonefruit OMG, I know JGL is musclier now but Danny Pudi + JGL would be close to a "kind of gangly, though, right?" overload. Elbows everywhere!
@Lucienne Bill Clinton and George Clinton.
@Lucienne I believe "Elbows Everywhere" is the name of JGL and Danny Pudi's new band.
Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan. I'm sure they actually have publicly embraced, but I want them to do it ALL THE TIME.
@The Attic Wife Ian McKellan hugged me and kissed my hand...onstage. It was one of the highlights of my 16th year.
@Bittersweet story please!!!!!!!!!!!
@Didldidi My friend and I went to his one-man show, Ian McKellan Acting Shakespeare, in MD. We went up onstage to "act" as dead French soldiers in a Henry V monologue. When we got up I was closest to him, and he hugged me and kissed my hand. And then I died.
When I came back to life, I bought a t-shirt and had him sign it after the show. I said, "Thanks for letting me die onstage," and he replied, "Thanks for dying."
Pictures or it didn't happen (please let this have happened because it is the greatest).
@TARDIStime I wish I had photos! This happened 25 years ago, and sadly I have no photographic proof. You can find out more about that show on this page, though. And I have a fairly hilarious journal entry taking the evening minute by minute.
Nick Offerman & Joe Biden.
ETA: The Onion's perception of Joe Biden.
@travelmugs Nick Offerman and Zach Galifianakis. I imagine their facial hair reaching out little beardy-stachey arms to embrace each other as well. That's not disturbing, right?
Benedict Cumberbatch and David Tennant.
@Aeroplane I'm sure this has happened (aren't they friends?) but if the internet ever got a photo, I'm pretty sure it would break Tumblr.
@yeah-elle: Do you think adding Tom Hiddleston into the mix would break tumblr even further, or cause the internet to implode?
@RK Fire I'm surprised the mere suggestion here hasn't caused a brief internet blackout.
*flails, dies in corner*
*scampers off to read more Sherlock/Avengers/Dr. Who crossover slash*
@glittercock: shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. "now kiss!"
I found this fanart drawing of Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Tennant and Matt Smith but they aren't touching each other.
@glittercock Oh JESUS fucking Christ. Benedict, you handsome scalawag.
@RK Fire: Okay, this is a link to the actual artist's tumblr.
@glittercock That sound? Thousands of pairs of underpants spontaneously combusting. And I thank you.
Holy shit! I would do anything (and I mean anything) to be the meat in that hug sandwich.
British men's fondness for touching each other has always served me well.
That picture is my favourite thing on the internet today. 1000 internets to you!
David Duchovny and Jeff Goldblum (personal laminated list fulfillment)
@chrysopoeia As long as I can be in the middle.
Gary Oldman and Ryan Gosling. I sort of feel like I would cry and feel like I was watching a father and son reunite???
@okaycrochet I didn't realize how much I wanted this.
Faramir and Aragorn aaaaaaa
@martinipie Gimli and Legolas yessss
@wee_ramekin: Cassandra Clare got brought up the other day; do I need to reference the Very Secret Diaries?
"Sam will kill him if he tries anything."
@martinipie Tom Bombadil and Gandalf. That would pretty much set the world right.
Benedict Cumberbatch and An Otter.
Martin Freeman and A Hedgehog.
Alan Rickman and Jeff Goldblum.
Adult Aang, Adult Sokka and Adult Zuko.
Mako and Literally No One Ever (because I hate him).
Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton.
@wee_ramekin Alan Rickman and 1974-era Harrison Ford.
@wee_ramekin Isn't Mako the worst?
Sokka and Bolin.
@frigwiggin He is the worst! And yesssssssssssssssssss to a Sokka/Bolin man-hug.
Also, friggy, I had no idea you were an ATLA/LoK fan! This is aces.
@wee_ramekin I so completely am--der boyfriend and I just finished LoK recently and I spent half the episodes fangirling over Bolin's darling hilariousness and the other half yelling mean things about Mako at the screen. I have tentative faith that his terribleness will be explored in the next season(s), though, because otherwise, bleahhhhhh.
@wee_ramekin YES TO THE GROWN UP GAANG and also yes to the no to Mako!
@wee_ramekin MAKO HOW ARE YOU SO TERRIBLE. Korra, ditch him, hook up with either Asami or Iroh II. (Or... both?)
OH GOD. How could we have forgotten THIS, the most epic of man-hugs in the entire Avatar 'verse? Not ashamed to admit that I sobbed like a baby during that scene.
holy fuck y'all this comment thread scratched my itchy "like" finger REAL GOOD.
i am in my happy place.
GARY OLDMAN AND THE DUDE WHO PLAYS FARAMIR WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN HOT!LUPIN
@redheaded&crazie although it's not a BROmance I have in mind for them
@redheaded&crazie Gary Oldman and Christian Bale
@redheaded&crazie Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
(wait have these been done already?)
Liam and Chris Hemsworth sandwich, please.
Obama and Romney?
Let's explore "Tim Gunn and ..." possibilities.
Just spitballing here:
and 2 Chains
and Sanjay Gupta
and David Brooks(?)
and Todd Akin (maybe he could use it?)
and Simon Cowell
and Louis CK
anyone else wanna get off a Gunnshot?
