”"You're Thor? What about me? I'm tho thor I can't thpeak....”

Six-foot tall Torvald Alexander, 38, was wearing a red cape and the thunder god's silver-winged helmet when he spotted the raider in his front room rifling through a desk.

Mr Alexander, who runs building firm Alexander & Summers in Edinburgh, Scotland, said the burglar threw himself out of a first floor window of his £350,000 home in the Inverleith area of the city after being caught red handed.

Mr Alexander said: "As soon as he saw me his eyes went wide with terror.

"He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break in, but he hadn't counted on the God of Thunder living here."
Ummm, no. I just bet he hadn’t...

And you've gotta love a guy who so very obviously made his costume himself.
He added: "I had just got back from a fancy dress New Year's party and because I have a Norwegian name I decided to go as Thor.

"It took ages making the cape, helmet and breast plate, and I must admit it was a bit chilly walking home, but when I saw that guy I just went mad and charged at him, my cape flying behind me.

"I think if I had had Thor's hammer with me I might have scared him to death."
We salute you, Mr Alexander. And I’m sure there’s a frosty horn of mead waiting for you in Valhalla....

The Thunder God went for a ride
Astride his favorite filly.
'I'm Thor!' he cried
The horse replied:
'You forgot your thaddle, thilly!'

"Mr Alexander said he was contacting police and was going to hand over the burglar's shoes in the hope police can trace him."

Only one person is going to be nicked over this, and that is him. No way are the police going to expend effort trying to catch the burglar.

Thor's wife was called Sif.
Her hair was made from metal wire.
