It appears that, to study the brain of a troll, I'll need the brain of a troll... or half a dozen, just to be safe.
Bring me the best Troll Brains in the area - and the freshest. If there's one thing I know about science, it's that brains go smelly after awhile.
I appreciate your assistance, [%NAME], but were these honestly the best brains you could find? They appear a bit runny. Did the trolls you got them from seem as smart, less smart, or smarter than the average troll? Well, I'm sure they'll do.
