When you come across a genuine, bona fide troll I hearby promise, pledge and solemly undertake to award a bottle of decent Champagne to the person who can provoke the longest response. We're talking sheer length, as I find that I have no patience to read the really long troll posts. Before next year's burn I will let you all know where I'm camping and if you show up with documentation that you baited the troll sucessfully you get the bubbly.

But our only troll isn't responding. Damn, I really like champagne too.

I'm a patient person, I'd just wait for it to go away. I could just be lazy, though.

Clarification, please! What qualifies as "decent" champagne on the playa?

Depends on the troll, who else has flamed 'em, what the troll is about, my mood, are they cute, etc.

Smooth, tasty, and about $20 out of my range. :( I usually just go with Korbel, but I've no complaints if somebody else is buying.

Cheers,

If VC is on the table, I'll not only get the troll to write the longest post, I'll find it, slay it, and bring its head to the party.

"Decent champagne" ... see that's the kind of question that provokes troll wars, see e.g., Joseph Dunphy on the old list. It was precisely that question that provoked a response longer then the Starr report and 3x as boring

Lately we've been sipping Chandon, sometimes Gruet, if you don't like it, well fuck your day!

Please note the last was merely for purposes of grabbing a cheap ryhme.

Bubbly at the man. I'm in. Lexan Champagne glasses go on the list. Now I feel like a yuppie. Also seems like a decent place for an award ceremony, and we've still got like 11 months to seriously bait some trolls.

Don't try this at home...
