Ok enn jötunn
um afrendi,
þrágirni vanr,
við Þór sennti,
kvaðat mann ramman
þótt róa kynni
kröfturligan
nema kálk bryti.   (eddic or germanic)

(And still the giant, habitually contentious,
strove with Thor about his strength;
he said no man was strong, even if he could row
mightily, if he could not smash the goblet.
)
