Fact of the Day: Mother Loki

In Norse mythology, Odin's horse Sleipnir was the son of Loki. Except Loki gave birth to him in the form of a female horse, making Loki his mother.

One of my favorite Norse myths! Oh Loki! That's what you get when you're a shapeshifter. Knocked up by a stallion.

Hey Adam, you'll get a kick out of this! The funniest part is Loki's face when he sees the pregnancy test results:
