Nick Offerman reciting a poem about firewood will warm you with laughter

Nick Offerman has the sort of menacing look that suggests the man is wholly unapproachable. Perhaps that’s the reason it’s so hilarious when he steps out of character and shows us all that looks are often deceiving.

During an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Jan. 19, the actor delivers a heartfelt poem about firewood with golden lines like, “I swing my trusty axe, splitting each piece right in half with the sound of my mighty thwax” and, “and when that pile gets high enough, I’ll shed a single tear, for there is no wood left to chop yet I am still right here.”

Offerman is currently touring with his wife Megan Mullally.
