[ Thunder Crashing ]

[ Dr. Neuman ] The Mifulu represent a fascinating example

of failed culture. The people of the Mifulu

communicated entirely in rhyme...

although that's actually less impressive than it sounds...

becuase their language only contained one wovel.

Also, if you've noticed...

the only artifacts we've been able to unearth

are primitive musical instruments.

The Mifulus had plenty of drums...

guitars, harmonicas and the like...

but no weapons or tools.

So, in essence, they had rhythm, they had music...

but theyhad no hammers and spears...

so they died.

In any case, this brings us to the final room of the tour

and my personal favorite...

- The Hall of Norse Mythology.

- [ Thunder Crashing ]

This is Odin...

chief divinty of the entire Norse panteon--

''The Allfather'' as he's called...

And these paintings depict some of Odin's many sons.

That is Thor, God of Thunder...

with his mighty hammer.

And this is Balder...

God of Beauty.

- Who's that ugly guy?

- Oh. I was just about to get to him.

That's Loki, Norse God of Mischief.

- He was also known as ''The Trickster''.

- [ Ghostly Screams Echoes ]

As the youngest son of Odin...

Loki was the black sheep of the Norse mythological family.

His constant mischievous pranks

were an endless source of embarrassment.

to his father and his siblings.

He was, in other words, a bratty little brother.

And Loki's ultimate tool of mischief was this...

the mask which he created

as tossed down to earth thousands of years ago

to create mayhem among the mortals.

For, according to legend...

the wearer of the mask is imbued with the powers of Loki himself.

- Is that true?

- No, of course not.

If it were, I'd be wearing it myself.

No, no, it's textbook mythical allegory.

Loki represents the ''I'd,''

the suppressed parts of ourselves...

and the mask is the tool which unleashes the id.

I go into this very topic in my critically acclaimed book.

Now, of all the Aesir gods--

Excuse me, sir.

Please don't touch the mask display.

Of all the Aesir gods...

Loki was the only one who could shape shift...

Change his from, even turn himself into a woman.

[ Man ] A woman? Man alive, lock up your sons and daughters

around that twisted piece of fruitcake, hey, Doc?

[ All Chuckles ]

Well, I guess that's one way of putting it.

Anyway... Loki brought nothing but shame to Odin and his ilk.

In fact, Loki was such an unruly child

that Odin ultimately locked him up in chains

far beneath the earth.

[ Angrily Yells ] He did not!

[ Thunder Rumbling ]

[ Roaring ]

[ Roaring Continues ]

- [ Man ] Good God!

- [ Loki ] And don't you forget it!

[ All Screams ]

[ Dr. Neuman ] Apparently, you do not agree with my theories.

[ Glass Shatters ]

Finally!

- [ Angrily ] This is a fake!

- Yes, but it's a good fake.

Ow! Sir, that is museum property.

Oh, I'm sorry Let me replace it.

[ Stammers ] What-- what are--

What are you doing?

Perhaps I should inform you I suffer from vertigo

and I have a lawyer.

- Hello?

- [ Laughs Eviliest ]

Where's my body?

Come get me.

- Yeah. Oh yeah.

- [ Security Guard ] Hold it right there!

[ Guns C*cks ]

[ Gun Firing ]

I don't like it here.

[ Gun Continues Firing ]

Thanks for dropping by.

- Dropping?

- Bye.

- [ All Screaming ]

- [ Crashing ]

Where's-- my--

[ Yelling ] mask!

Who's a happy baby?

Who's a happy baby?

Aw, Clare, he's amazing.

Honey, look at him.
