In the original draft of this cartoon, Loki suggested that Baldur become “God of Clogging”, and included the punchline, “the humans can sacrifice cattle to you at Riverdance,” but for some reason making the cartoon about schuhplatter seemed funnier in the end. I know next to nothing about this ridiculous form of dance, but I find it oddly fascinating to watch and I secretly long to do it professionally someday.

Even though schuplattler seems to require having both hands free for the various slaps, I thought it was important to have my platters waving cans of Old Skull beer in their hands.
