[Poll #1879786]

(ETA: The reason I ask is that Ken wanted to use the term in a geocache name, and I was a bit concerned about the connotations!)

Dead pets???

All dogs go to Asgard?

I heard that term for the first time this weekend, somewhere... But I'd never heard it before.

It was in reference to dead pets. But I didn't vote, because... before a few days ago, I'd pick neither.

ETA: Actually, what I'd think of first is Rainbow Brite.

Both? I think of dead pets but my immediate next thought is "but I don't know why they'd want to go to Valhalla."

Our old cat would. And take the vet with her, I think.

I knew it was originally a Norse mythology reference to Bifrost, but it's been co-opted. (And am I the only one who's annoyed by the dead pet thing?)

It's not just you. I find the alternate use overly cutesy.

Same here.

Oh hell no. I find it cringeworthy. But I think it's here to stay.

[identity profile] 2012-11-20 12:15 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah...but some people find it comforting, so I hate to snark on it. :(

So, I need to go and learn Norse mythology.

Many many years ago, a friend of mine who was involved with a bisexuals support group sent me a few copies of a newsletter he had worked on, called, "Bifrost: The Rainbow Bridge".

So that's what I think of. But I recognize that that's a fairly limited use. :)

I know both, but I think of the pet reference more.
