    So they are going to try to make money off RickRolls? And they are releasing a CD with Rick`s songs on it, thinking it will be a best seller?

    Wow. These people don`t understand us at all.

    I think they see this as a huge hit because people like the song, thats far from it rofl. Trolls are funny. Thats why I love the internet.

    Mets getting rick rolled, no other rick roll will ever top that. I really can`t believe they went through with it. I`m glad I voted for it Hahaha. 5 million votes! Great job internet people!

    Yeah, I doubt Family Guy is clever enough to come up with their own jokes. They always copy internet fads, or make stupid pop culture references that have nothing to do with the episode`s plot. (If the episode is lucky enough to have a plot)

    CNN did not "finally" discover rockrolling.
    CNN "finally" reported on it.
    Stop stroking your E-Penor for how superior you are. Jeez.

    Incidentally, the producer you see taling is the guy who started pop idol with Simon Cowell.(American Idol is the remake of that show.

    Oh yeah and I couldn`t see it but it is hardly going to be a surprise. Rick Astley is soooooo embarassing. :[

    I can`t wait until cnn does a report on lolcats

    ---

    BREAKING NEWS

    It`s a phenomenon thats sweeping the internet world. Started on the show "planets funniest animals" That shows on animal planet, a "lolcat" is where somebody takes a piture of a cat, and writes what they think the animal is thinking/saying. However, there is a dark side to the matter. If you look at the pictures, A high majority of the words are misspelled, and completely free of grammar.

    CLIP OF FAT SOCCER MOM:

    "I think this is a major problem. We need to educate our children about proper English before this becomes an epidemic."

    The board of education has released a statement that all GYM and PE classes will be cut in order to make room for new schedules which will include extra reading and English classes.


    50 bucks that report airs in two months.

    "CNN Finally Discovers Rick-Rolling - As always, the mainstream media finally comes around to what I-A-Bers have known for months now."

    good link, but super FAIL link description. it is not about rick-rolling phenomenon, it is about rick-rolling the stadium, which is not several month old but quite recent. Wasn`t there already a post on iab about how the internet managed to rickroll the stadium?
