What are the coolest Gods and Dieties of different cultures?

Yorick did it. He wants us to know that contrary to his weird musings about obscure backward people's crazy beliefs God actually comes from Surrey and God wants us to know that he is really concerned about us all. As soon as God gets a moment he'll fix everything but right now he's busy dealing with a backlog of planning applications from some friends in the Conservative Club, sorting out the bill after the Golf Club Christmas do and tracking down a builder from Essex who put in a dodgy extension on his house then did a runner (he's got Cerberus sniffing him out).

I suppose it's lame, and hipsters would definitely call it too mainstream, but the Judeo-Christian God. I mean, Omnipotent, Omniscient, AND Omnipresent? Dude has it all. Not afraid to throw down a plague here or there either.

Vishnu is badass. It almost makes me want to learn Sanskrit so I can read the Baghavad Gita in its original form. My god has more arms than your god! Plus fangs too! I kind of dig Ganesh, too.
