The Norse Statue

After a heavy day’s digging at the archeological site in Norway, the researchers uncovered a priceless statue of the ancient Norse thunder god.

It was a wondrous piece of artwork – He had bulging muscles, and imposing stance, and of course his famous giant hammer.

But most important of all, the eyes in his fierce-looking face were made of two giant rubies that glittered with a brilliant red colour.

Of course, the two leading archeologists on the dig were both determined that they should be the one to have their name listed against the discovery, and pretty soon the argument was intensifying to the point where the rest of the team, despite being exhausted after the day’s work, started to gather round to watch.

The two of them continued squabbling for some time, and they provided the others with a great source of amusement for the evening, and by the time they finally gave up and called a truce, everyone else was feeling quite refreshed by the entertainment.

As the crowd dispersed, one junior digger turned to his friend, and said:

“Well, that was a fight for Thor eyes.”

  3. Awakening in the halls of Asgard after a particularly great evening of sucking back the mead, the Thunder God recovered his helmet, then turned to the Valkyrie who was pulling on clothes nearby, and whose name he had forgotten.

    “I am Thor.” He said to her.

    You’re Thor?” she snarled “I’m tho thor I can hardly pith!”
