Troll’s Tooth

A curiously shaped hard object resembling a large misshapened tooth.


The tooth belonged to the first troll on the Internet. In late 1989, this anonymous troll began wreaking havoc on conversations and psyches around the world. This tooth was lost in the flame wars of the early 90s, and came into the custody of the SHUSH museum through a series of anonymous exchanges. It is seen as a symbol that trolls can be defeated, and all those who viciously and relentlessly threaten, intimidate, and cause emotional harm on the internet will ultimately lose.
