Beware

In case you were wondering, I have it on good authority* that a troll lives under this bridge. A mean one. With fangs.

*Little Bit. (Hey, 6 year olds know this stuff.)

In Norse mythology, trolls were mythical magicians (think black magic and sorcery). Maybe they can light that small lantern with the touch of a gnarly finger, or turn fairy dust into torrential rain.

Some say trolls could be destroyed by sunlight or turned to stone by light of any kind.
If you learned the name of a troll and spoke it aloud you could steal the troll’s power (think of the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin as one example).
Lighting bonfires at crossroads kept trolls away from these intersections.
Trolls were especially fond of stealing babies and seducing wives.

Looks too pretty for a troll. But I guess you never know what'll come out after dark!

Steal his laptop and he won't be able to troll any more.

I'll bet that ol' troll has a soft spot in his ol' heart for Lil' Bit...he's just keeping up appearances with all that gruffness....

I was wondering who was doing all of this baby stealing and wife seducing. Now I know. Fangs are obviously not a deterrent.

Mister Earl said...

Baby stealing? Wife seducing? @CaseyAnthonyDefenseTeam - trolls - trolls is the answer - why didn't you think of that?

I'm guessing from the height of the bridge, it's a short troll. I think it would be safe to guess that "shorty" is at least his nickname.

Mister Earl, you win for the laptop comment!

THanks, everybody...
