New York angers Thor

It's official, New York has done something really bad and upset that most theatrical of Gods Thor; Christian religious authorities are speculating on why this is the case, some say its because of gays or perhaps abortion, others blame aggressive secularism, some even say it's the lack of fresh herring available but in any case New Yorkers should be more respectful towards Thor or they can expect a lot more electricity oriented punishment to come their way!

Breaking News: Apparently senior religious officials from the Asian subcontinent are claiming that it isn't Thor after all who's angry, a delegation from India are attempting to clarify the position pointing out that the only true God of lightening is "Indra", during a news conference a small group of Greeks heckled the Indians chanting "Zeus", "Zeus" and outside the building several Italians waved banners proclaiming the wrath of Jupiter. In the New York times this morning a Cherokee Indian chief has written an article stating that the whole thing is nonsense since everyone knows that God "Ani Hyuntikwalaski" causes lightening, whilst a team of Mexican specialists have dismissed this theory warning that unless everyone starts paying proper respect to "Huracan" then for every bolt that the upstart Thor sends he will send three!

If you're interested in what this is really about then here's the real caption associated with this photograph:

"This is the moment a lightning bolt struck the Statue of Liberty in New York. New York photographer Jay Fine had spent the night braving the storm in Battery Park City, Manhattan, in a bid to get the perfect picture. Jay spent nearly two hours poised with his camera and took more than 80 shots before striking lucky with this particular bolt of lightning at 8.45pm on 22 September. He said he had been waiting 40 years to get the picture."

40 Years! wow, reality is so much more interesting (and much harder work!) than all the other stuff!
