Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the Know Your Memes: 1) Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do. 2) Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them. If you’re using Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, for example, you’ll probably want to grab a quote from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica. 3) Attribute the quotation to a third character, from yet a third universe. This way, nothing about your image is correct, and you’re trolling fans of all three characters at once.

It was Clint Lalonde who shared the GIF on Facebook. I’ve added the text to ramp up the troll count.

Triple Troll Quoting and The Riffness of #ds106

That first heady phase of the first round of DS106, back to December 2010, before Jim Groom’s first class very started, set the stage for the creative riffing ethos that is part of this crazy space.

Like free form music jamming, it is taking something someone else has played, …

Triple Troll

The Triple Troll, in spirit, is meant to irritate fans of three different things at once. This one went in a little bit of a different direction. This one will only irritate one fandom and the others won’t care at all. They are nihilists. They are too exhausted.

Troll Quote

Now this is an interesting assignment.  We’re meant to take a photo of a famous figure, put a quote from a separate, related figure, and attribute it to yet another separate, but related figure.  For this one I decided to break out the nerdy stuff (I managed to hold it …

Queen has been an a group I have listened to since I was young. They were my mothers favorite so I grew up listening to them, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, the list goes on and on. Freddie Mercury is partially remembered for his outrageous outfits. He gave not a care in …

Troll Quotes: On Writing

For this assignment, I decided to do the “Troll Quote” prompt. We were told to take a picture of a famous person, add a quote by a second person, and attribute it to a third, unrelated famous person.

Judge Rawls on Justice

I wanted to start warming up with a nice “Troll Quotes”assignments, one of my all time favorites. This troll quote is actually inspired by the theory that the hard-ass character Major Bill Rawls in The Wire is ironically named after the political philosopher John Rawls. And after reading …

I’m already on Season Two of The Wire, but I’ll try not to include too many spoilers for my comrades in #wire106.

Clowny Ass Troll Quotes

While not a distinguished Triple Troll Wire Epigraph, I couldn’t resist doing an old gold Troll Quote assignment—and this quote from D’Angelo‘s treatise on power, capital and reward was hard to get out of my head. Interestingly enough, Rawls very well could have been saying this venomously to …

Troll Quotes

The Troll Quotes assignment is another reason I signed up for DS106. We see plenty of motivational posters, demotivational posters, and LOLCATS, but I was just tickled by the idea of a three-way culture hack.

Troll Quotes

Picture of Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, quote from Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft and attributed to Larry Page, CEO of Google. The quote definitely sounds off for Jobs, and I think his fans would be thoroughly enraged to see someone else’s name on his photograph.

Troll Quote, Troll Quote, Off To Make A Troll Quote!

As a fan of Babylon 5, when I read the description of Troll Quotes, my thoughts immediately went to Londo Mollari, the sarcastic, sharp-tongued Centauri ambassador. Any script from the show could be mined for a dozen or so entertaining and insulting quotes from him, though the line “What do…

I suppose you expect me to talk

When the commercial for Cee Lo’s show came on, my wife asked, “What’s he doing with the cat?”
“Maybe he wants to be Blofeld.”
She didn’t get it, but it made me think of the triple troll quote. So I took my favorite Goldfinger quote, put Blofled’s name on it,…
