About

Troll quotes are image macros that feature a quote from a popular movie or TV show and attribute the quote to a character in another popular movie or TV show. Often the background image will come from a third unrelated pop culture source. These images are created in order to annoy or troll members of all the involved fandoms who will quickly identify the obviously incorrect attribution.

Origin

On December 11th, 2010, Redditor moifaux added a thread titled “How to drive Harry Potter, Star Wars and LOTR fans insane with just one pic.”[3] The photo the thread linked to featured a picture of Gandalf, a character in Lord of the Rings and featured a quote from Star Wars attributed to Dumbledore, a character in Harry Potter. As of August 2014, the photo has gained over 2,000 points.
