AFD 2007: Blood Oath In 30 Seconds

[Instead of the normal layout, visitors to the ISB on April 1, 2007 were greeded instead with the shocking pink sight of Fatasgardian.net: The World's #1 Volstagg Fan-Page!, complete with its own This was, of course, intended to be a joke, despite the fact that I pretty much already have the world's #1 Volstagg fan-site. Anyway, in an effort at self-parody, I spent my workday on a "30 Second" recap of Thor: Blood Oath that I hope everybody got a kick out of. For the full effect, check out these pictures!]

You've probably all heard about it already, but for those of you who have missed out on the latest controversey, well, Jerry (the idiot who runs TubbyViking.com, the world's SECOND best Volstagg Fan-Site) is at it again.

In his latest "fan"-fiction (and I use the term loosely, Jerry), "My Dinner With Volstagg," he writes about a guy named Barry who becomes Volstagg's best friend on Midgard (Earth) and then spends the second half of the story having Volstagg talk about how much better he is than his old friend, Rick Tims.

Not Cool, Jerry!!!!

Did you really think I wouldn't be able to see through your "clever" ruse? You're not Loki, pal, and your little schemes are only showing the world of V-Stagg Fandom how petty you really are!

But far be it from me to sink to your level! Instead, I'm offering up what everyone REALLY wants to see: The latest installment in my comprehensive series adaptating every major appearance of the Lion of Asgard! And this time, it's Mike Oeming and Scott Kolins' voluminously awesome mini-series, Blood Oath!

Click any of the pictures to view them at a size worthy of the greatest of the Warriors Three!

I think that shows who the REAL #1 Volstagger is around here, Jerry.

I know I say this every time, but great job once again on the Volstagg re-cap. Blood Oath was great, but could have used more of the Voluminous One.

I still don't understand why you won't post a link to my Volstagg/Midgard Serpent erotic fanfic site on your main page, though. I think your readers would really enjoy it.

Whatever Sims! I'm three times the Volstagg fan you are, and the tattoo that I have on my penis proves it! Now that's the Lion of Asgard!

I'm pissed. I came here expecting some April Fool's tomfoolery, but instead find the ISB has become what it was destined to become...
So, no jokes at all? Let-down.

impressive, sir. i wanted to do something similar for the Aquaman Shrine (turning it into the Sub-Mariner Shrine for the day), but i lacked the time and committment to do it as throughly as you.

Voltagg would certainly raise a flagon of mead in tribute!

Volstagg doth roll mightily indeed, friend! Truly the playa-haytas such as that punk-ass varlot Loki are to be pitied on this day

Tattoo, Jerry? Do they let fifteen year-olds get tattoos now? I'd suspect foul play even if that picture you posted DIDN'T have the telltale smears of (poorly done!!!!!) washable marker work!

Sweet chocolate Jesus...the 30 second recap, the renamed links to other bloggers*, oodles of love for the Solomon Burke of Asgard**, this whole page...

It's beautiful. I think I need a moment to collect myself.

** You know Volstagg has a beautiful baritone. You just know he does.

Doing a Google Image search for "tubby viking" is surprisingly disappointing.

So, uhhh... Since it's 4/1, I'm ASSUMING you think this is all hee-hee-funnylaffs. But I'm gonna have to agree with the folks who've said it before... This is pretty OK for permanent as far as I'm concerned. I mean, he ain't the Lion of Asgard just because of that pimpin' beard.

You STILL haven't weighed in on the Volstagg controversy over in UltimateThor! Does Land trace Cedric the Entertainer whenever he draws UltVolstagg or not??

You know what the beautiful thing about the prank was that if you googled Volstagg, you come up 3rd in the list. Not bad for a goof.
