A reader responds to the April 1 post with a succinct email:
Another elaborates on that sentiment:
Dammit, I got Rickrolled by you, or by Andrew, or by whoever’s idea it was to put up the Rick Astley video. I thought the link was probably to Andrew’s message to readers that he put up the night before, about taking a week off. But no – I click on the link and up pops the youthful Richard Paul Astley of 1987. It has been quite a while since I have been Rickrolled at The Dish.
I thought Andrew was REALLY going to send a “message to his long-time readers”. On second thoughts, I guess he did!!! CURSES.
I want to quickly note how difficult it was finding a version of the “Never Gonna Give You Up” video that doesn’t have a pre-roll ad, which defeats the whole purpose of the rickroll. Advertising really is ruining everything.
