Tors hammer

I needed a good phrase to be able to explain to others that I don't know much Norwegian. I had a friend help me cook this one up:

Jeg kan ikke mye norsk, men det lille jeg kan, bruker jeg slik som Tor svinger sin mektige hammer over himmelvelvingen og sprer frykt i sine fienders hjerter.

Translated: "I don't know much Norwegian, but the little I do know I use like Thor swinging his mighty hammer across the vaulted heavens spreading fear in the hearts of his enemies." I'm practicing saying it with a halting introduction building to a powerful and exciting climax.
