Funny Pranks: Rickrolling

One of the biggest worldwide internet pranks...

An inflated balloon which I'm never gonna let down.
A few weeks ago I briefly mentioned the 'Rickrolling' phenomenon which for anyone who doesn't know, is the art of posting a link to a seemingly relevant subject, only to instead sneakily redirect the user to the video for Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up'.

I have to admit, I'm not really a massive fan of Rick Astley's music, but I am a fan of foolish japery, so the idea of someone clicking on a link expecting to find information about a serious subject, only to instead be shown a cheesy video of Rick Astley singing 'Never Gonna Give You Up' appeals to my weird sense of humour.  It also apparently appeals to Rick Astley, as he has called the Rickrolling phenomenon 'bizarre and funny'.

Over time, variations on the Rickrolling theme have developed, with ever more elaborate 'Rick Astley' related pranks being sneakily implemented.  Here are a few notable Rickrolling examples...

How To Make Facebook Even Better!

If you've arrived at this page expecting some sort of quiz, then read on for an explanation...

Facebook is now even better!
6 Mr Men characters like this.
Over the years facebook has gone through many changes.  Sometimes these changes are well received, while other times they don't go down so well.  However, one recent change in particular is so perfect that it's like facebook read my mind.

In fact I remember this time last year thinking, 'Facebook is pretty good now, but what would make it even better is if my timeline was jammed full of updates telling me what Game Of Thrones characters my friends were, what Mr Men/Little Miss character they were, what 70s rock band they were, what actor/actress would play them in the movie version of their life, what celebrity they'd get arrested with and generally many more mundane trivialities in which I have no interest whatsoever.'

And now ... my wish has come true!

It's like facebook read my mind!

Funny Football Quotes (Part 4)

Yet more amusing football quotes to round off the season...

Another serving of amusing football quotes.
Another season of Premiership football comes to an end today, so as has become traditional by now on my blog, here's another round-up of amusing football quotes from footballers, managers and commentators on the beautiful game...

1) Gary Lineker:  "Steve, I imagine there's mixed emotions at the end of that game."
Steve Clarke:  "I don't think they're mixed emotions.  I'm very very sad for my team, but I'm also immensely proud of the performance."

2) "If you closed your eyes, you couldn't tell the difference between the two sides."
...Phil Brown

3) "I’d been ill and hadn't trained for a week and I’d been out of the team for three weeks before that, so I wasn’t sharp.  I got cramp before half-time as well.  But I’m not one to make excuses..."
...Clinton Morrison

Star Wars Jokes

May The 4th Be With You...

Darth Maul takes time out of his
busy schedule to pose for a photo.
As today is officially Star Wars Day I thought it would be an appropriate time to round up a few Star Wars jokes.  Most of these are really old so apologies in advance if you have to dust off the cobwebs...

1) Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are out for a meal at a Chinese restaurant.  Ben notices that Luke is struggling to use his chopsticks, so after a while he finally says, "Use the forks, Luke."

2) Here's one for Star Wars Chemistry nerds...


The base is under a salt!

3) Darth Vader made me some toast but it was a bit on the dark side.
