Billy-goat Cannon   (+9, -1)  [vote for, against]
solve the troll infestation

Everyone knows that trolls hate and fear billy-goats, especially gruff ones. Get a herd of approximately similar size goats, put them in a converted human cannon from a circus and bag yourself some trolls.

Alternatively, use the goats to herd the trolls into an enclosure where they are fitted with (GTR's) sharpened 'pole pants' and they'll die from blood loss when they eventually sit down.

How are you going to finance this? Do you think money grows on trees? Oh, wait...

traditionally, the way to deal with nit infections, is to comb the wet hair with a special comb which breaks the legs of the adult stage of the pest and so rendering it unable to reproduce. nifty eh?

i think a comb might be more appropriate to protect the goats from the likelihood of sexual abuse by the less fearful trolls

how about bridge-shaped traps that collapse when they crawl underneath to hide?

+ here is quite an interesting and halfbaked idea.

[21_Quest] Well, goats are famously agile; perhaps they'd land on their feet. It's not as if anyone had ever *tried* this. Alternatively, use cats. (*Booted* cats would be a match for trolls, I'm sure.)

Maybe you could fit the goats with parachutes and/or airbags.

BTW does this troll infestation actually exist? Outside the internet I mean?

Yes. And it's YOU.
