Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

thursday thunder


Where I currently reside, Thursday is synonymous with trash day! Now, I know very well that the fake Norse deity, Thor and his thunder are supposed to be the origin of the very word "Thursday" (which was, hence, "Thor's Day" - hmpf!)
I guess it all means that -you've guessed it... you're seeing it come, from a mile away... and that is good because such was my intent all along- so, it all means that Thor is Trash! *LOL*
And I couldn't agree more!
I never liked that particular Marvel rip-off who is, in his civilian identity (at least originally he was) the most execrable of things... a spineless quack with no backbone at all! That's right: whereas Superman changed clothes to become mild-mannered Clark Kent, Thor ran his hammer into the ground and *poof* - just like that, gone were the tights (and the muscle tone too) and a suit and tie (along with the meek form of one Dr. Donald Blake) appeared out of nowhere to take his place...
Very weak premise - why would any fake deity from whatever pantheon there is subject himself to such a degrading transformation?
Only in Marvel Comics... pardon, Marvel Entertainment, could there be such odd and completely illogical occurrences...
Marvel's very own resident creative head honcho, Stan Lee, ripped them all off anyway: Mr. Hyde (Hulk), Greek mythology (mixed in with sci-fi = Cyclops), the competition (DC's JLA = the Avengers), the four basic elements (Earth, Water, Air & Fire = The Fantastic Four) and, somehow, Superman and Tarzan all at once (Spidey) - so ripping off Norse mythology was a cinch to him.
Of course, nowadays, everything is derivative of derivatives - so we have many more thrice-diluted end products, but that is another sordid story...
The end results are, always, trashy indeed...
As another brilliant mind (...) once said; "nuff said"... ;)

Amazing synchronicity, once again...

I blog about THUNDER, out of the blue...

And TODAY is the birthday of OLD THUNDER...

Joseph Hilaire Pierre René Belloc (July 27, 1870 - July 16, 1953) was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. His style and personality led to the nickname, "Old Thunder".

This is just priceless!
 
Belloc may have been a bellâtre - his looks bore more than a striking similarity to Karloff's Frankenstein (the squareness of the jaw and the eyes, especially...)

And we all know how much Franky liked thunder and lightning...

I wonder about Old Thunder though...
 
Oh, you've just shattered my image of Thor... he's my hero in star gate *grin*

Thank you for the beautiful message you left in my guestbook... it meant a lot to me!
