It’s April Fools day, and you know what that means: Rickrolling!
Yes, Rickrolling, which Urban Dictionary defines as:
To post a misleading link with a subject that promises to be exciting or interesting, e.g. “World of Starcraft in-game footage!” or “Paris Hilton blows Busta Rhymes’ dick” but actually turns out to be the video for Rick Astley’s debut single, “Never Gonna Give You Up”. A variant on the duckroll. Allegedly hilarious.
…so instead of getting to beat off to footage of Ann Coulter getting raped by hyenas, I got rickrolled. What a day!
There’s been some Rickrolling in Line Out’s comments section today, and anecdotal evidence suggests other blogs (Status Ain’t Hood, for instance) are suffering similar April Fools. So, have you been Rickrolled today?
