My favourite swipe typo of the day: "Norse cancelling headphones". Presumably that means Bluetooth is turned off.

explanation of the joke if ya don't get it 

The name “Bluetooth” comes from Harald ‘Bluetooth’ Gormsson, a Danish king and Norseman [i think, don't fact check me]. Anyway the Bluetooth logo is a mashup of Norse runes so that's basically the joke 👍

@ash
Crap, my headphones aren't working! They're runed!

@ash
Haraldr blátönn will not be pleased about being cancelled. He'll definitely be changing his MAC address.

@ash that's a typo, it actually cancels Morse, just in case.

@ash That would be even worse for me, a Norwegian, than that time I accidentally bought "nose cancelling headphones!"

@ash Incredible joke. The other day I explained that origin to someone and he straight up didn’t believe me!

@ash old Harald "Bluetooth" Gormsson would not be pleased.
Loved the deep referencing here.

@ash *listens to music, completely unaware of Thor trying to talk to me*
