It’s April Fools Day, Have You Been Rickrolled Yet?

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?

Not exactly a Rickroll but I sent a friend this link earlier today b/c of its potential chilling effect on his fever.

Best was http://www.blogoscoped.com today.... you go to their main page and what do you see? Some kind of broken/messed HTML code. And what do huge nerds on the internet do when they see page errors? They "View Source." Go do it.

Were no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do i
A full commitments what Im thinking of
You wouldnt get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand

* never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Weve know each other for so long
Your hearts been aching
But youre too shy to say it
Inside we both know whats been going on
We know the game and were gonna play it

And if you ask me how Im feeling
Dont tell me youre too blind to see

(* repeat)

Give you up. give you up
Give you up, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, five you up

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand
