The Boners of Östergötland

Friday, August 30th, 2013

In Östergötland, Sweden there are many boners carved into the surfaces of large rocks that protrude up through the ground. And, while we’re on the topic, I am sure there are many other boners in Östergötland of another sort as well…that also do their own sort of protruding. But those are not the types of boners that we are interested in here. No, we are interested in the rock-carving boners and these rock-carving boners have managed to keep it up for a solid 3000 years, which is a pretty good indication of an amazing level of stamina if you ask me. In addition to boners, these bronze-age Geats also carved pictures of boats, weapons, and animals. Clearly, these people had their priorities.

It is also interesting to note that Östergötland basically means Eastern Geatland in English. For those of you that are familiar with Beowulf, you will also know that he was a Geat, so we’re basically talking about boner carvings that were made by his ancestors. You can read more about these hällristningar (as they are known in Swedish) at Hällristningar i Norrköpings kommun (in Swedish only), which is also the owner of the image above. Some information in English is available at Upplev Norrköping but is unfortunately much less extensive.

The images below actually belong to me for a change.

Loki in the Buff

Check out this crazy painting by Mårten Eskil Winge of Loki’s punishment for being a dick (and while we’re on that topic, let me just say I approve of Winge’s decision to obstruct Loki’s dong with his thigh; good call there):

Winge is actually more famous for this painting he did of Thor beating some giant ass with his mighty hammer, but I also like this painting of Loki’s punishment. I think Winge did a good job of capturing Loki’s insanity and the snake is pretty cool. I do kind of wish however that he had a scar from the venom dripping on him each time Sigyn has to go and empty her pan, but maybe he does and it’s just hard to tell viewing it on a computer screen.

The Watch

Why do some guys seem to enjoy strutting around naked in the locker room so much? I’ve never understood this. And it’s usually the old, wrinkly guys who are the main culprits. They just stand around chatting, letting it all hang out, taking up valuable floor space, and altogether just delaying the much-needed re-clothing process. Recently, I even saw one guy washing his socks in the locker room sink while naked. Why? I mean seriously, why? …Hail onwards »
