Joanne the Troll

The new slang on the Internet is troll. On the Melungeon GenForum, certain members are calling others, a troll. Well, I have been collecting troll dolls since childhood. I have a wee tiny one with long pink hair, big pointed ears, huge pointed nose, a very big mouth and little beady eyes. I named it Joanne or just Joannie. I think it is unfair to the real trolls to have their name associated with this newest slang.

I found a sweet online article about the history of troll dolls.
