In a major coup for Christianity, Odin, the ruler of Asgard and Allfather of the Norse Gods has signed a contract to the end of time to replace the outgoing Holy Spirit in the Christian Trinity.
Speaking today at a press conference Odin said, “Obviously it’s a step up for me and I know I will have to deliver. I know have the ability and the ambition and I’m looking forward to showing our followers what I can do. I spoke to the Gaffer a couple of days ago and I knew I wanted to come here. His vision for religion matches my plans and I plan to move to Heaven from Asgard as soon as possible.”
The Christian God also spoke at the conference, ‘I’ve had my eye on the boy for a while and I was impressed with his performance in European Neopaganism so I’m expecting great things. He’s in the first team for Sunday.’
Rumours regarding Jesus’ next big move were immediately quashed by God, ‘He’s going nowhere. His contract is water tight and we have a good loan agreement with Islam so no plans there at all.’
Followers of Christianity were overjoyed at the signing and see this as a major shaking up of the trinity that will move merchandise and thrill and hopefully swell crowds on Sundays.
The Holy Spirit was unavailable for comment although sources close to him say that he was examining his options with a loan move likely to the Indian Premier League, more specifically with the multi-theistic thrillers of Hindu.
