Seriously, what's with all the trolls and trollish behavior going around here lately? They and their sentiments seem to be multiplying like rabbits.

Oh yeah, I forgot the planet Venus. It flipped off the Sun, or whatever that was.

There's a complete transcript of it here: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/humor4.shtml, if you can't see the video.

How sad that there is no longer any comedy that even *begins* to approach Abbot and Costello, the Three Stooges, and the Marx Brothers.  Sad Sad Sad

Evil Dead 2, besides being the best movie ever made, was also a very funny movie. Though to be fair, Sam Raimi was heavily influenced by the Three Stooges.

Nope.  Probably on past my bedtime.  And if it has foul language or sexuality/sexual innuendo, etc., etc., I wouldn't watch it anyway.  (I know---what a grouch  Grin!)

Ha.  What a clever trap have I laid!

J Michael, Asteriktos, and Maria, you'se people are just trolling me now!  But you did not recognize me for who I am.  Father Ambrose, before the time of sadness, once referred to me as the King of Trolls, who's very name means "a war to you" in Serbian, and who should be hung from the walls of New Gracanica as a warning to others.  Thus, as King of Trolls, thou art my subjects.  I demand ye kneel before me!

And lo, the Vamratocracy became one step closer to realization.

From fake hurricane tweets to anonymous online viciousness, we look at the “troll factor” in the national conversation.

News from the world of Internet trolls lately.  In the midst of Hurricane Sandy, of emergency and life and death, trolls on Twitter posting false reports of power outage and crisis where it wasn’t.

In the midst of online site Reddit, a mega-troll and pedophile promoter, unveiled.  Outed.  The migration of so much of our national conversation to the web has opened a door to the troll – the anonymous prankster bully vandal derailer of discourse.  Trolls say wait a minute, we’ve got a point.  Do they?

This hour, On Point:  Internet trolls.

According to most on this board, trolling is my greatest asset.

Sadly that doesn't translate well in the real world.
