Caught reading the tabloids again! In this case the news not fit to print.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Jack the Stripper is the nickname given to an unidentified serial killer responsible for what came to be known as the London “nude murders” between 1964 and 1965 (also known as the “Hammersmith murders” or “Hammersmith nudes” case).

…never apprehended.

To make up a poem that’s a limerick

With Trolls in you need to be quite quick

From the Raccoons Gruff

To The Clipper playing rough

I’ve attempted so many I feel sick!!

To be honest, I can’t remember doing anything trollish lately, so I’m not sure how this came up.

fidem, prae caeteris omnibus praeter honestatem

 

 

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

I’d guess it’s a group effort, just like something out of the Troll FAQ:

Quote:
2f) The GANG TROLL- A single troll will invite others to join a successful thread, or a group of trolls will agree to launch a simultaneous attack on a pre-determined target …. The trolls may choose to argue opposite sides of the issue, half pretending to be groupers who are over-the-top and fight back against the evil trolls ….

In your forum we all like to hang

Wreaking havoc with never a pang

And what we like the best

Is when everyone's stressed

It is more fun to troll with a gang

 

Our victims we love to harangue

As we enter your thread with a bang

And we won't ever rest

Until you're depressed

That's the Tao of our little Troll gang

That FAQ description is an old fashioned forum war. Originally these were done to drive new traffic to a site. Depending on the tactic of the trolls and nature of the sites youd be surprised how well it can work.

Just drink until it looks normal or you pass out and dream about bit.

The maze is impossible to win as the blue lines all end up in a dead end. Look at the end near the red dot. Both blue passages only go an inch and they stop.Frown

Trolls! All-a-ya! Did anyone else notice there is a red phone in the blue-and-yellow tunnel raccoon city posted?

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.

I just answered it as it was ringing. It was sb telling me to tell you all to grow up and stop acting like children.
