I just Rickrolled myself

I have heard the term 'rickrolled' and 'rick rolling' about lately, and, being the curious soul I am, looked it up. Urban Dictionary explained the phenomenon as a hilarious internet meme type thing where people make fake links to the youtube video of Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' music video, due to it's bad 80s dancing. Anyway, then I went back to the google search and found a website called Rickrolling.com, which, should you wish to annoy someone to the point of them having to force-quit their browser, you should send them. Don't, however, visit it yourself.

Why? What happens if I visit the site? Now you've piqued my interest. But I'll take your word on it and not visit the site myself.

Popups all over the place i bet.

About 5 years ago, 1 in 5 websites would have so many popups id have to quit it through task manager.

Bless Rick he was the Red Haired Jesus of 80's pop. He had as much talent in his whole body as most people have in there little pinky finger. Yeah think about!

The latest XCKD is a timely fit to your recent discovery I think.

Well, this is bizarre. I was reading some Wiki stuff about this Astley song and it mentioned that Tay Zonday had done a cover of it. This led me to the Wiki page for Tay and it says that he died 4 days ago. Anyone else heard this? Google search turns up no such stories.

Unfortunately Rickrolling died a while ago when Carson Daly lamely did it to his studio audience.

Hey, Bri! I didn't know you had a blog on blogger. Should've known. I got rickrolled today at an mp3 site assuming I was listening to an rare, unearth joy division song that started out in pure joy division style, but then morphed into rick astley's annoyingly catchy tune. fuck me in the ass. (not really)
