My wife had a German Shepherd named Thor when she was a kid. I'm betting her older brother named it after the superhero.

I will see your THOR and raise you a PILEDRIVER.

Wait, the guy in the first, cheezy video and the 'heavy metal' guy are the same guy?

When I was a kid we had a neighbor who named his two sons Thor and Conan. Not nicknames either. Those were their given names. Poor bastards. What in the name of Odin's beard were they thinking?

I have seen Thor live. Quite the interesting show. He can't quite explode the water bottle like he used to though.

"Take back what you said about Thor!"

I think the guy who made Thor's webpage and runs his fanclub is actually a MeFi member. You here, Mike? And you gotta see Thor live at least once in your life. The steel bar thing is fun, but blowing up a hot water balloon until it explodes? Entertainment gold.

Oh, no. Say it ain't so.

This reminds me of a friend of mine in college during a basic science exam, encountered the question, "What is a torr?" Her answer was "God of Tunder."

The professor gave her full credit.

The thunder god went out to ride
Upon his favourite filly.
"I'm Thor!", he cried. The horse replied,
"You forgot the thaddle, thilly!"

autodidact: Who could forget Vincent D'Onofrio as the God Of Thunder. Or of crescent wrenches, as it were....

I couldn't find a picture, but Uncle Mike refers to the B.C. strip I remember as a lad:

ME THOR!
There is a great "BC" comic strip where the one guy named Thor, gives a Tarzan yell and swings through the air on a rope, and lands in front of The Cute Chick and proclaims, "Me Thor!". She just looks at him and replies, "I thought tho, the way you were thcreaming."

Holy crap that was D'onofrio?! Wow. That film was an enjoyable piece of fluff but I prefer the blues club scene (not to derail).

Back on track, I'm thor myself from reading about Thor.

HUSHOVD! Oh how could you not include my favorite Thor? He's a hero to all tall cyclists!

Wow. This kid seems truly disappointed that Thor has put on a few pounds over the years:

"Kotraba (1 month ago)

Surely this dude must have covered "If I had a hammer" at SOME point.*

My longboat and I aren't impressed.

Partly because they're misspelling it. It's Þór for the love of fuck.
