For many folks, autumn is a time of falling leaves, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-spiced beverages. For Chris Pratt, however, it’s all about the trolls.

This week the Guardians of the Galaxy star shared on Instagram his excitement about “#TrollTime,” also known as “the time of year when evil trolls roam the woods and scratch their greasy nails up and down the tree bark sharpening them for the purge.”

Posting a photo of a thoroughly scarred tree — what more evidence do you need? — Pratt explained that troll season is “a big deal in the Pacific Northwest.” He went on to encourage his followers to put down their phones, go outside, and seek out the mythical creatures.

Get the full scoop on #TrollTime in Pratt’s post below.

Oh snap!!! It's my favorite time of year!!!! Where my peeps at who know what I'm talking about? To be clear, what I'm talking about is #TrollTime ##TrollTime is the time of year when evil trolls roam the woods and scratch their greasy nails up and down the tree bark sharpening them for the purge. The troll purge is a big deal in the Pacific Northwest. And an epidemic. Trolls are being wiped out at an alarming rate. Only you can stop their decimation by wrapping yourself in bacon and hanging out near bridges and offering yourself up as a scrumptious snack to the trolls. Now I know what you're thinking… Nothing. You are not thinking anything at all. Your mind is utterly devoid of thought. You are 6 inches from your phone mindlessly scrolling through bursts of colorful meaningless digital cerebellum numbing information blasts meanwhile REAL LIFE BEASTS are out in the woods eating and making love and running all buckwild scratching up the trees. PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE GO OUTSIDE BREATHE DEEP AND LOOK OUT FOR TROLLS
