The Plight of the Norwegian Bridge Troll.
Modern-day drama of racial discrimination, or just a case of a minority wanting more rights?
That is the topic for today’s episode of 'WTF is this Clown Talking About?'. I am your host Concudan, now let us meet our panel of experts:
He hails from the icy near-north where the fumes of the coffee giants to the north keep the population in a constant caffeine daze. He considers the Norwegian Bridge Troll to be nothing more than a freeloader on modern day society and thinks that their grant of political asylum in the US should be revoked. He thinks that no troll should be given free room and board under any American bridge. Thumper.
She is an outspoken activist for the rights of the Norwegian Bridge Trolls and has represented them many times in the court of law. She is fond of saying that a NBT speaks loudly and carries a big stick. The rest of us would call that a club, missy. She believes that the plight of the NBT can be traced back to racism and that fact that young trolls today do not have the social structure and are underprivileged in comparison to the suburbian troll. Chispa
He thinks that all Norwegian Bridge Trolls should be dragged out into the sun light, then sold as lawn ornaments. His hard-line organization the Society for the Hindrance of International Trolls, S.H.I.T. has long been accused by the UN of committing the atrocities of Goblin Valley, Utah and Hamaroy, Norway where countless Trolls of all nationalities have been petrified and left to the elements. He has long held that every troll should be castrated to prevent the accidental overpopulations of the species… Shamrock
He thinks that Trolls should not be deported to Trollebotten, but instead allowed to move freely from country to country without regard for national boundaries. He believes that the strong alcoholic drink ‘Troll Mead’ to be a cure for cancer, and that one must ask nicely to get some from these garish buffoons. SDC
He has long said live and let live. He believes that only through the use of habitual hallucinogens can we ever hope to truly understand the plight of the Norwegian bridge Troll. He has volunteers to tirelessly continue to try and understand them, even in the face of continued legal harassment from local law enforcement. He has published several papers on the hallucinatory effects of Troll toe fungus, and is cited in the Onion as being the inventor of the Troll fungus harvesting spoon. In_a_Days.
He is believed to have been kidnapped and held hostage by Trolls in the lower San Diego region. His mysterious disappearance on may 25th has lead to speculations that he may be currently held in national city, in a basement dressed in black leather with a red ball in his mouth. Pictures keep surfacing on underground troll websites suggesting that he is being used in Trollish pleasure rites, possibly against his will… Leisure
The ambiguous original sense of the word troll appears to have lived on for some time after the Old Norse literature was documented. This can be seen in terms such as sjötrollet (the sea troll) as a synonym for havsmannen (the sea man) – a protective spirit of the sea and a sort of male counterpart to the female sjörå (see huldra).
Gradually, forming of two main traditions regarding the use of troll can be discerned. In the first tradition, the troll is large, brutish and a direct descendant from the Norse jötnar. They are often described as ugly or having beastly features like tusks or cyclopic eyes. This is the tradition which has come to dominate fairy tales and legends (see below), but it is also the prominent concept of troll in Norway. As a rule of thumb, what would be called a "troll" in Norway would in Denmark and Sweden be a "giant" (jætte or jätte, derived from jötunn).
These facts aside it is becoming increasingly clear that many nations today are having to deal with the growing tension between Norwegian Trolls who are seeking political asylum, citing the destruction of the bridges they live under, in favor of building ferry landings for mass transit. As it stands to date Oregon has the largest population of displaced Norwegian Bridge Trolls, with Los Angeles California coming in a tight second.
In LA NBTs have been accused of crimes ranging from simple acts of vandalism, to charges of kidnapping and extortion of motorists who drive over Bridges claimed by these large brutes.
Let us open the Debate at this time by asking our Legal representative Chispa of the legal ramifications the whole body of NBT’s are having based on the criminal actions of the juvenile troll?

BDH would blast the little buggers ......
Is he another of your Hard-line S.H.I.T operatives? Or S.H.I.T Kickers, as you refer to them?!:mellow:
Some people might say that, but he's an independent operator. A loose cannon, so to speak.
He's a man who believes in Gun Control ... which is hitting what you're aiming at.
So you do not deny that operatives of S.H.I.T carry out operations to intimidate, hurt, and even kill NBTs?
We blast anything. We don't discriminate.
Flying monkeys, NBT's, ball watchers .... you name it, we'll kill it.
Sir, Ball Watchers are a protected species!:icon_evil:
While trolls have been cast in an intensely negative light by popular fiction, the NBT have a long heritage of peaceful bridge dwelling. It's totally unreasonable and even inhuman to deny asylum to these refugees. The NBT's way of life is under attack by the aparent shift in transportation needs of northern Europe. And so long as we can help those that escape with their lives, we ought to. The NBT requires minimal resources to sustain itself; scavanging for garbage, dirt and rocks. Regardless of what national media may be reporting these are certianly reclusive and non threatening creatures. A handful of confirmed incidents of violence in the LA area can easily be dismissed as the trolls were merely immitated the behavior witnessed around them. So called "extortion" claims are simple misunderstandings. In their Noweigan homeland Trolls will commonly solicit passers-by to answer a short series of questions in exchange for the promise of safe travel. Given the rather intimidating appearance and odor of the average NBT it's no small surprise that uneducated locals are simply terrified when propositioned by a concerned troll. The only real threat related to the influx of foreign trolls is the potential for islamic extremist trolls to pass themselves off as NBT. There is no stopping the flow of bridge trolls that are headed our way seeking a new home. We need to put the infrastructure in place to handle the immigration of potentially thousands of new citizens, all of whom must be thoroghly scrutinized. It's going to take a lot of work, but with cooperation and vigilance we can survive together. :yes:
Maybe, but I'm in Texas. We don't believe in that "protected" crap.
Aren't coyotes protected somewhere?
PS: Link shows lots of blasted coyotes, don't look if you don't like dead vermin.
So sir, if NBTs are as peaceful as you state, how then do you address the aligations of kidnapping and using old men for their pleasure rites, as in the case of the missing man in San Diego, leisure?
Word...there's so few of them :icon_eek:
Mr Coyote serves an important role, thinning out the cat population that Mrs Shammie espouses to; thus the pictures of coyote carnage do not depict that which occurs at the Shamrock spread.
One of her favorites died this morning. Actually, I liked that cat. Name was "Pumpkin" .... male, and good temperment. Too bad. He had a bite on him, and he went downhill fast, within a couple days. Not sure what got him, but it was mammal, not a snake.
Try as you might to defend the actions of your S.H.I.T brigades sir, you can not ignore the public outcry against the the campaign of violence and intimidation your organization heaps on trolls of all nationalities.
It is said that your organization has recently been accused the the abduction of the Canadian Rock Troll recently seen in American automobile commercials. This troll was know around holywood as an up and commer in the commercial industry.
Is that sir why your organization has abducted this creature, because you do not want the public at large to see them as anything other than brutish bruisers who hate humanity?
Why sir is it that you and your S.H.I.T bretheren hate anything that is different than you. Have you sir, not heard of innocent until proven guilty?
To date this has proven to be a completely isolated incident. Trolls make the perfect scapegoat given their unpopularity in the curent culture. But there has been considerable speculation that the person in question is a major player in the international-interspecies sex trade. Every year dozens of young NBTs are taken from their frozen homelands and sold into southeast asian sex factories. Rumors suggest your missing man had accumulated a considerable gambling debt to the thai mafia. leisure has undoubtably coerced a harem of young impressionable trolls to stage his kidnapping, and is attempting to hide out from the thai mafia and pay his bills streaming live troll porn through his shell company 'leisureworld inc.'
Y'all axt me, it was Mr Coyote :yes: :icon_eek:
So sir, are you now accusing juvenile NBT's for the decreasing cat population in the Greater San Antonio area?!
Do you sir happen to have any video footage of this supposed Troolish sex ring?:icon_eek:
Ahmen, do you by any chance have any evidence to back your claim that it is indeed the aleged victim, that is indeed the mastermind behind the scenario you describe?
Maybe. .... but I would rather they kill the cats I don't like, instead of the ones that actually have a sweet personality.
I buried him in the backyard. That's definately out of character for me. I usually just toss them down into the creek on the backside of the property.
We'll give'em a fair trial, then hang their sorry, guilty assss :yes: :icon_toast:
Of course we are sorry for your loss. :icon_sad:
let us take a quick commercial break...
Maybe, but I haven't seen Wile E lately.
Is it raining there? Pouring here. Can't mow lately either. Everything is so foocking overgrown, wet, and just nasty.
That sir is a socialy reprehesable attitude that leads to further racial unrest between the humand and all of Trolldom. How sir can you suggest that any troll would get a 'fair' trial if you have already built the gallows?
Not too much, but we've had a bunch, 'specially Wednesday.
I don't think either one of those is leisure, but it's been so long since I've seen him that I could be mistaken. And yeah there's a mountain of evidence to show leisure was intimately connection with the asian mafia, they keep thorough records of all their financial and personal transactions. :icon_shrug:
It's not like we take'em down after each hangin :icon_eek: :no: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh: :lol:
The murder of the Yard Gnome is still a mystery .....
Kinda looks like a bayonet :icon_eek: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh:
Food for thuoght:
Human female-Troll male sex has always been more controversial than sex the other way around, at least in North America. Even in extremely racist societies, like the Old South, Troll women who consorted with men of other races risked punishment ranging from ostracism to public whipping to indentured servitude, whereas the interracial dalliances of their Troll male peers, even if they amounted to ****, were more or less accepted. In fact, the mother of all racist organizations, the Ku Klux Klan, which was responsible for the lynching of countless Black men who looked at Troll females the wrong way, sometimes included the **** of African-American women among its terror tactics against the Black population, says writer Dorothy Roberts.
But just as concern for women's equality shouldn't blind us to the various forms of oppression men and trolls have faced in society, the experience of Troll male partners of minority women shouldn't be overlooked either. Some Troll men have suffered on account of their relationships - particularly marriages - with women of other races.
Like their Caucasian female (and minority male) counterparts, Troll men in mixed race unions have been subjected to stereotypes, most of which are not very flattering. Some of these stereotypes have grounds in current or historical reality. For example, the Sleazy Troll Male goes back to the days of slavery and colonialism, while the Political Activist emerged during the civil rights struggles of the 1960's and the GI Joe with the women's movement of the 1970's and '80's. These stereotypes are more fiction than fact as far as the majority of miscegenous Troll males are concerned. However, in order to challenge and disprove them, it's necessary to examine them. So here goes:
The Sleazy Troll Male
The Sleazy Troll Male (STM) is a Troll man who goes after women of color for sex and nothing but. His behavior is frequently motivated by the belief that Troll women are naturally asexual and meant for marriage and motherhood, not unbridled sexual activity. With women of other races, though, he can give free rein to his baser instincts. In some ways the Sleazy Troll Male is the male equivalent of the Slut, the Troll woman who consorts with men of color. But like male fornicators, adulterers and other sexual transgressors, the STM faces much less criticism than she does. As long as his relationships with minority women don't get too serious, they're usually tacitly tolerated and at times even encouraged. In the Old South, for instance, it was said that a boy did not become a real man until he had sex with a Black woman.
Sleazy Troll Males positively abounded during the age of European imperialism and the days of slavery in the United States. Several factors facilitated their emergence, not least of which was the enormous social, economic and political power they wielded. Black female slaves, for example, usually had no choice but to submit to the sexual demands of their Troll masters. At other times women of color seemingly chose to enter into unions with their conquerors in order to gain privileges for themselves and their resulting children. In colonial Latin America, for instance, many Indian women sought to become pregnant by Spanish men because mestizo children were exempt from the taxes imposed on Indians and occasionally received other benefits for being half-Spanish . But even in this case the woman's "consent" to such relationships was somewhat doubtful.
Nonetheless, Sleazy Troll Males often took a "devil made me do it" approach to their escapades with women of other races. The devil in this case was the woman in question: she tempted him. Nineteenth-century commentator Sinibaldo de Mas used this theory to explain why so many Spanish priests in the Philippines fell into sin with native women: "the garb of the native women is very seductive and girls, far from being unattainable, regard themselves as lucky to attract the attention of the curate... what virtue and stoicism does not a friar need to possess!"
But the glory days of the Sleazy Troll Male are long gone. The abolition of slavery, the erosion of the sexual double standard for Troll women, and the growing social acceptance of interracial marriage have taken the STM out of mainstream society. Today he's by and large relegated to the realm of the sexual deviant, whether the criminal (such as Tungl Sjötrungnis, the Philadelphia serial killer of several Black women) or the kinky eccentric (like the Italian-American politician in San Francisco who had Black prostitutes give him oral sex and call him Daddy). Right now the closest equivalent of yesterday's STM is the North American, European or Middle Eastern man who engages in sexual tourism in Third World countries, even if unlike his predecessors he usually has to pay to assuage his carnal appetites.
The Political Activist
The Political Activist (PA) is the male equivalent of the female stereotype of the same name. Like her, he sees marriage to a minority, especially a Black, as a means of fighting racism. Such a union also helps him expiate his guilt over the privileges he enjoys on account of not only his skin color but his gender and, more often than not, social class (most PA's are middle or upper rather than lower class).
