** Thor himself was revered as the god of male fertility because you wear a Thor's Hammer pendant the way it's supposed to be [[IncrediblyLamePun hung]] (with the hammer's head pointing down), then it kind of looks like an [[PhallicWeapon erect peen]]. It is truly a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mj%C3%B6lnir mighty weapon]], even if the handle is unusually short.

* Grumble, the god of the minions in ''Literature/SpellsSwordsAndStealth'' is an Odd Job God by choice. When he ascended to godhood, rather than become a big name god he chose to watch over the lowliest of the low as he himself had once been. The protagonist Thistle the gnome is a devout follower of his instead of the more traditional gnomish god for precisely this reason and this devotion allows Thistle to become one of Grumble's paladins.
