SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chatroulette – the popular online webcam game – is the mecca for furry naked dudes and Internet trolls.

The Cheezburger Network’s latest offering is chatroulettetrolling.com, a compilation of the weirdest, grossest encounters between strangers on chatroulette.com.

Creator Lisa Kacerosky says the webcam game that pairs strangers for a random chat is meant to be messed with.

Trolls – web surfers who crash forums looking to provoke – are getting a kick out of surprising unsuspecting victims with lewd, bizarre images on the other end of the camera.

Kacerosky says clever trolls often put up stills of “furry naked guys” or disgusting videos like a fat lady running naked on a treadmill.

Others make funny signs or wear ridiculous costumes, though she notes that “masks are played out.”

The tricks make Chatroulette good for a fast, five-minute laugh. Stay any longer and a hairy butt may pop up on your screen so Kacerosky advises, “Leave on a high note.”
