Cat/Thor and Monkey/Bheema - Light lifting is heavy

source
Norse mythology: Cat's paw

Utgard-Loki(King of Frost giants) gave Thor number of tests to prove his strength.
1. Drain the horn in three drought: He was able to drink he wasnt able to empty it.
2. Lift the cat: He was able to move only one paw
3. Move the grandma : He wasnt able to move grandma but she managed to bring him to his knee.

Thor is one of The mightest gods in Norse mythology. He is the strongest, heaviest and bravest of all.
Thor couldnt pass single test and he left in shame next day.

Trick:
Then the king reveled Thor that the cat's paw was the enormous serpent Jormungand who was long and strong that he could circle the entire world. And being able to lift his paw was remarkable. The horn had its other end in sea. And that old age woman, against her no man had any defense. So, Thor didnt loose but magic just won.


Hindu mythology: Monkey's tail

Not just between Norse/Greek/Indian mythologies you have stories similar in their own mythologies. In Ramayana Sita would urge her husband Rama to catch a golden deer. In Mahabharatha Draupati asked one of her husbands Bheema to fetch the fragrant lotus flowers after getting to smell one of them brought to her by the wind.

Bheema went in search of those flowers and on the way he saw a old fragile monkey with its tail stretched on his path way. He kinda raised his voice and told monkey in a patronizing tone "monkey, move your tail". The monkey replied, "I am too old and weak, if you could please move the tail yourself"
Bheema got down to move the tail but he couldnt, he tried and tried but couldnt.

Bheema is one of the five brothers Pandhavas known for his strength. He is mightest of all and bravest and the heaviest as well. He never thought that he couldnt lift a fragile monkey's tail. He was humbled.

Trick:
With humility he requested monkey to reveal himself realising that it could be no ordinary monkey. Then the monkey revealed himself - it was none other than the Monkey god - Hanuman from Ramayana who served Rama and Sita.

Moral of the story:
King George is an hero in British and vicious villain in France.
Sleeping with many is termed as as macho-stud in men and as slutty in women.

In my story, if I dont win something, it is always because of tricks and magic by the bad-guys.

    3. You should change our middle name to skinnet ( Lego chima's skunk's name, when you talk with a mommy, these are the references you get)

  2. That's what you get for trying to move grandma. Once she sits down in her favorite chair, neither hell nor high water could move that woman.

  3. Lift the cat? I don't believe I'm reading this. A rhyming cat? I would like to catch a golden deer, my dear. The monkey revealed itself.... not too much I hope ;)

    1. We already have one rhyming cat. He is enough for whole of Canada and US and all the seven continents. Maybe monkey did maynt it didnt, but Bheema had to make up story as "it wasnt a monkey, it was THE monkey Hanuman, that is why I couldnt lift the tail, not because I couldnt"
