Question [Norseband] Help needed with "silly" time messages

Greetings, everyone!

Thanks to my friend Zop from the Furyband forums, Norseband is slowly moving towards an alpha version (which I'll upload to the variant homepage as soon as it's playable). I've been tweaking the text files to remove any out-of-theme references, some of which are harder to rewrite than others. Substituting "Norseband" for other variant names, and one of the end villains' names for "Morgoth", is easy enough. But what should I do about these messages, other than deleting them?
  • What did you do with the Phial? [no obvious artifact suggests itself here]
  • You need your chocolate vitamin! [not only out-of-theme, but just too weird]
  • Tornado Warning! [ummm, not in Scandinavia...]
  • Warp Factor Nine. Now! [blatantly out-of-theme, best replaced by a whole new line]
If any of you have suggestions that are funny, short, and appropriate to the new theme--please post them here. I'll use the best four in the official version, and give contributors a place in the credits file.
