As many of you know, we have our own pet troll here at Wizbang! Well, OK we have several but I’m only talking about one specific pet troll today. I’ll call him Little Pet Troll. Little Pet Troll loves to search this site for anything to be offended by. Then when he thinks he finds it, he runs back to his blog and posts a breathless post about how the world is coming to an end because of something someone wrote on Wizbang!
Then when someone, usually Kevin, explains to Little Pet Troll what was really said (something Little Pet Troll could have determined by actually reading) Little Pet Troll makes a comment like “Whew, thanks Kevin, I was worried for a minute there.” As if humanity itself had been saved by a few words from Mr. Aylward.
In reality, Little Pet Troll got the attention he so desperately craves and he is now satisfied… Until a few days later when the whole cycle including the “Whew, thanks Kevin, I was worried for a minute there” line will be repeated. It is a vicious recurring cycle.
Another thing you should know about Little Pet Troll is that he LOVES to link what he has been reading. By golly, he does it morning, noon and night.
Considering his self professed high moral standards, I was surprised Little Pet Troll did not link to the post below about the Kosmonuts cheating in the Weblog Awards and give them a strong rebuke. I mean– he could never be feigning outrage at a right-wing blog but giving lefties a pass when they commit vote fraud could he? No, not my Little Pet Troll, I’d never believe such a thing.
I hope he’s not sick or anything… I mean, I KNOW he would trash the Kosmonuts if he saw this.
I guess I’ll just have to wonder where Little Pet Troll is.
P.S. We just got future posting at Wizbang so I will set this to be fired in about 3 hours. I don’t want to be a jerk and accuse Little Pet Troll of being an attention starved hopeless partisan hack without giving Little Pet Troll time to get going in the morning. He may surprise me and get real morals… though I expect the silence to be deafening. But we shall see…
If he does surprise me and this gets posted AFTER he links the post, that’s still OK.
He can’t complain about his post because I’ll say in advance. “Whew, thanks Little Pet Troll, for a minute there I was worried.”
That line has been known to handle everything.
