I know what it means. I know what it is. But it has never happened to me.
Today on twitter Backpacking Dad sent out a rickroll. I didn’t have time to fall for it before I knew it was a trick (rick?) and that’s no fun for my first rickroll. Knowingly clicking into it? For shame.
I lamented that I had never been rickrolled when someone sent me this link to Bill O’Reilly getting rickrolled at the end of his program.
I’ll save you the bleeding ears.
Bill O’Reilly freaks out and screams the F word a few times at the camera. I mean, I don’t love 80′s music either but I was NOT expecting that. I couldn’t stop it fast enough.
the moosh noticed the crazy conservative screaming at me from my computer screen.
“Why is that guy screaming that you suck? Is it because you’re still in your underwear?”
Thankfully we just had to have the “we don’t say suck” discussion rather than the “we don’t say…you know what” discussion. And the underwear thing? Whatever, my kid almost lost her innocence at the mouth of Bill O’Reilly. BIGGER PICTURE HERE PEOPLE.
(***A rickroll is when someone is all sneaky and links to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” video under an unassuming link. You click it, thinking you are going to be taken to blog about pork chops but instead are taken to the video. Then you have the song in your head and you’ve been rickrolled. Song. In your head. All day. Seriously, there’s a whole Wiki entry on the phenomenon.)
(In other delightfully ironic news, the moosh’s BFF, PK learned the F word today too. Cody also thinks it’s cute that I never expected a conservative to swear like a sailor.)
