Dublin Zoo, together with TheJournal.ie are opening a new habitat to showcase the Irish species of Internet trolls.
TheJournal.ie is home to largest private collection of Internet trolls in Ireland and now for the first time, they are going to be on display to the general public in a newly constructed troll exhibition.
The habitat will showcase a variety of Internet trolls, from the young teenage variation, to the trolls that didn’t get enough attention as kids and to those who are filled with a bitter resentment and hate their own lives.
The exhibition will be comprised of a series of wifi enabled bedrooms, that will be deliberately littered with rubbish and broken dreams to help recreate the trolls natural environment as accurately as possible.
Dublin Zoo is planning on extending it’s opening hours to facilitate the exhibition, as the Internet trolls are mainly a nocturnal species, many of whom do not arise until late afternoon/early evening.
People will be able to witness first hand the behavioural patterns of the trolls and get an insight into what motivates them to troll others online. A certain times of the day, visitors will be allowed to feed the trolls too. A mix of Coco Pops, Custard Creams, Pringles and counter arguments will be placed into a giant bowel and left beside their keyboards.
Dublin Zoo together with TheJournal.ie will be launching the new exhibition this weekend and have said that the overall response to it has been very positive.
However there has been some negativity thrown towards the exhibition, with one comment claiming that it is nothing more than an “exercise to fluoridate the water supply and pay the bankers back because the environment inst even heating up, its all a cover to keep the ordinary people on hunger strike while we pay back lizard people who live on the moon”.
