How often does a normal person get to judge the gods in a folk tale? Not very often. It's a fairly common fairy tale/folk tale thing for gods or supernatural beings to test, persecute, compete with or judge humans.
In One Thousand and One Nights (night 182) two djinn argue about two humans. Each djinn has a crush on a human - but whose crush is the most beautiful? the most perfect? Naturally they can't agree. And the female djinn Maimuna calls upon an 'ifrit to be the ultimate arbiter:
She struck the ground with the palm of her hand and out came an 'ifrit - one-eyed, hunchbacked, scabby, with eyes set lengthways in his face. There were seven horns on his head; he had four locks of hair that dangled down to his ankles; his hands were like winnowing forks and his legs like ships' masts. He had nails like lions' claws and hooves like those of a wild ass.
(p117 in the kindle edition of The Arabian Nights: Tales of 1, 001 Nights (volume 1) translated by Malcolm Lyons)
The 'ifrit can't decide either.
