Hello all!! A few months ago, I finished watching a lovely show from New Zealand called “The Almighty Johnsons” about four brothers who happen to be human incarnations of a few interesting Norse gods. I enjoyed the show quite a bit, as the story was interesting and fun. it is smart, funny, adventurous and at times dramatic show with great writing and wonderful actors. The show was created by James Griffin and Rachel Lang and features Timothy Balme, Emmett Skilton, Dean O’Gorman, Jared Turner, Ben Barrington, Fern Sutherland, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Hayden Frost, and Michelle Langstone.
Anyway, one of my favorite things to do after I have found something that I really like is to take that something and see if I can get a few laughs out of it. Anyway, this is what I came up with when I was trying to come up with a few one liners for this bad boy. Note that everything that comes from here on is meant in jest and is not meant to be taken seriously. So please, sit back and enjoy these amusing one-liners about “The Almighty Johnsons”!!
Bragi, God of poetry…Who can’t really write poetry. And yet all his pick-up lines are somehow better than, “Aren’t you going to search me? I could have anything down my trousers?” (Yes I am making reference to “The Hobbit”. Why? Because I can!)
A god you don’t want to play call of Duty with because he always kills you and doesn’t even wait ten seconds after you’ve re-spawned. (He’s the god of games, he always wins…So annoying)
The Iceman least likely to come out.
The bestest of friends!!
A Douglas Fir! (Sorry New Zealand, had to put in a bit of Oregon)
But sometimes she’s actually a bit more like this.
The Goddess of death…Or just the crazy lady Ty got married to. Either way, Hel hath no fury.
Odin on Chick day.
People one probably shouldn’t see on Odin’s chick day, but you have to go see anyway.
But that doesn’t stop your bestest friend from trying.
A place where everybody knows your name. (Even though sometimes they probably wish they didn’t)
The sexiest man alive!
A fun gadget Anders found at the Apple Store.
Enjoying your Apple product!
A Bible thumper (sorry if that term is offensive) who’s gonna thump somebody.
Dropping an especially heavy bible on your Apple product.
Getting a new Apple product!
Sending you Apple product back to the manufacturer because it doesn’t work well for you.
The Donald Trump of New Zealand gods. (Yet even he has enough class not to insult the voters…At least not to their faces)
God least likely to want to hang out under the Mistletoe.
Backstory that they can’t use because it would totally mess up the story. (And really old-timey references)
Odin when he feels pretty.
Friggity, Frigg, Frigg, Frigg!
Freki the Chihuahua edition! (Sorry dude, had to go there)
Okay, that’s it for now!! Look for the relevant songs below! Special thanks to James Griffin, Rachel Lang, Simon Bennett and all of the other lovely talent. Happy belated birthday to Emmett Skilton, and thank you for letting me play with this!! I quite enjoyed it!
Things to look forward to:
Amusing things to see in “The Dark Crystal”
Amusing things to see in “Poldark”
Amusing things to see in “The Lord of the Rings”
Amusing things to see in “Star Wars”
Amusing things to see in “The Hobbit”
and many others. Possibly not in that order. Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you!!
