Frequently Asked Questions:
In approximately 1976, the owners of a Scandinavian gift shop called Open House Imports started placing trolls they had imported from Norway out on their lawn to entice visitors into their shop.
The trolls caught not only the visitor’s attention but that of passing truckers. In the late 1970’s, truckers would denote their location to trucker buddies on CB radio by saying ” I just passed your mother-in-law on 18/151″-referring to the trolls they had just passed.
