Hey, if it isn’t Joe Troll. Good morning, Joe!
JOE TROLL: You’re an idiot!
JOE TROLL: That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Do your $%^&^&@ research!
Joe, you seem to have a lot of pent-up hostility.
JOE TROLL: I am not hostile! I just happen to know that anyone with an opinion that’s different than mine is a complete moron and should be banned from social media.
How can you be angry on a day like this? Look at that beautiful blue sky.
JOE TROLL: You must be off your meds. That sky isn’t blue. Can’t you see those thunder clouds rolling in? Are you blind?
