A rather insulting name for Trolls, but calling a troll a rock to its face is not the best idea, as an enraged troll can do a lot of damage.

In fact it is one of many ways to commit suicide on the Disc. Careless use of the word caused an early rift between Buddy and Lias Bluestone in the early days of the Band, and Sergeant Fred Colon was not above using the word in front of Detritus in the early days when the troll was a recruit Watchman.
