“Norse God mathematicians stick out like Thor sums”

The idiom to “stick out like a sore thumb” (to be very obvious) is sometimes expressed using the spoonerism “Thor sum.”

“‘He sticks out like a Thor sum’ - @adamdsain” was posted on Twitter by Jesse Baker on January 2, 2011. “Third grade arithmetic was hard for the Norse god.  He stuck out like a Thor sum” was posted on Twitter by Mark D on May 23, 2011. “If you do your maths homework in Viking runes, it’ll stick out like a Thor sum” was posted on Twitter by Drew Weir on June 14, 2011. “Norse gods are really bad at maths. I’m going through Valhala’s accounts and some errors stick out like a Thor sum” was posted on Twitter by Joe West on August 8, 2012.

If you do your maths homework in Viking runes, it’ll stick out like a Thor sum.

Norse gods are really bad at maths. I’m going through Valhala’s accounts and some errors stick out like a Thor sum.

At school I wore a Viking helmet to maths lessons. I stuck out like a Thor sum.

At the last comic con everyone noticed me adding up Norse God superheroes. I stood out like a Thor sum.
Which is why I was Loki at this one

The problem with Norse gods doing math is that it sticks out like a Thor sum.

The God of Thunder just got his report card back. Mostly A’s, but his Math grade stood out like a Thor sum.

I went to a fancy dress party as the God of Thunder, holding a calculator.
I stuck out like a Thor sum.

I tried to say “sticks out like a sore thumb” and instead I said “sticks out like a Thor sum”
Then when I tried to repeat myself to correct myself, I said “thicks” instead of “sticks”
