A snarky academic on Odin's theft of the Mead of Poetry from the giant Suttung:

 "The pursuit is so close that Odin cannot get all the mead back into the possession of the aesir, and he urinates a bit out; this portion makes bad poets. Thus we have Suttung to blame for the lyrics of most pop songs."

--John Lindow, Norse Mythology

And that's not even the racy bit of the myth. Nuh uh.
