Trolls are one of those things that you don’t mind watching, as long as they are far away and you are not the one being trolled. Perhaps the best way to enjoy the trolls is via youtube, or just reading about their ridiculous antics online. And that is exactly what we are going to do today. Of course, chances are you have been trolled yourself, or you will be trolled, or you may even be a troll! Whatever the case, thanks to human nature, trolls are here to stay. Today, from the safety of your computer, you are going to read about trolls in action. Some of these trolls were benign, others less so. The one thing they all had in common is a deep sense of mischief. Okay, not all of them. Some of them were genuinely accidents. Yes, that can happen. You may unwittingly troll someone just by virtue of your ignorance. It’s not that you meant to, but to anybody watching, they would think to themselves, “what a troll”. Either way, these aren’t your run of the mill trolls. These aren’t the spiteful youtube commentators. These are the troll champions. These are 25 of the biggest trolls in history!
