    I've heard of Thor. Reminds me of a great joke.

    Thor and a bunch of other gods and goddesses are at a major orgy. It's been going on for days. Finally, everyone is exhausted, except for Thor. He still trying to hit on the goddesses, but most have passed out. Finally, he finds one. She looks exhausted from all the non-stop sex, but at least she's still awake. So Thor, goes up and introduces himself.

    "I'm Thor."

    "You think you're thor? I'm so thor I can't even sit down!"

    As far as this guy, never heard of, never seen.
