Nick Lowe's All Men Are Liars:

All Men, All Men are liars their words ain’t worth no more than worn out tires.
Hey Girls, bring rusty pliers to pull this tooth, all men are liars and that’s the truth.

Do you remember Rick Astley?
He had a big fat hit that was ghastly.
He said I’m never gonna give you up or let you down.
Well I’m here to tell ya that Dick’s a clown
Though he was just a boy when he made that vow.
I’d bet it all that he knows by now.


Chorus

Among god’s creatures man must be.
The most slimy and slippery now.
There stands the naked ape in a monkey suite.
Behind a little mustache he grew, the shifty brute.
All the ones not choking on the words they ate are
Sweating on getting their stories straight.

Chorus x 2

Good one, Beav. Nick's tune was actually catchy enough to get Mr. Astley out of my head for a few blessed minutes, after I got Rick Roll'd.

Popular web prank consuming almost 3% of all internet bandwidth
By Suzanne Davis
MSNBC

They might be strangers to love, but internet bloggers and forum goers are no strangers to "YOU GOT RICK ROLL'D!" The internet phenomenon featuring Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" has been sweeping the internet in the form of an annoying prank. After clicking on a link to a website that hosts the "Rick Roll," javascript takes over the users browser, forcing it to dance all over the screen. If you try to close the browser window, the browser simply feeds you pop up windows with the lyrics to the song, one line at a time.

Have you been Rick Rolled yet?

Some security experts at Microsoft just want to tell you how they are feeling. Jason Patel from Microsoft's Internet Explorer Security Staff concedes that while one instance of the Rick Roll is harmless to an end user, the widespread affect from millions of users could be damaging. "Since this prank was introduced, we've seen a steadily increasing trend of Rick Rolling. I can't deny that it's a worrisome trend."

Patel goes on further explaining that the current prank could potentially be modified to include malware that would allow hackers access to your computer. Of course, there is also the embarrassing risk of distracting coworkers with the 1988 Billboard Hot 100 classic. Better mind your speaker volume!

A few security experts are suggesting that the Rick Roll is never going to give up, and that to protect internet bandwidth the prank should be built into the core of internet browsers. "People are going to get fooled, there's no way around that. By bundling the javascript and the video in, the web browser will recognize similar Rick Roll code, and will instead execute locally instead of streaming the music video from the source host" explains security analyst Mark Devington. Most disagree with Devington, saying that a security patch to block the rogue javascript will be sufficient.

Microsoft will be releasing a security patch for Internet Explorer that protects against this and similar javascript hijacks later this month.

Heard a story on NPR about Rick Astley. The NY Mets had an online vote to select the permanent 7th inning sing along song at their new stadium. Those smart alecky kids on the internets organzied a write in campaign for "Never Gonna Give You Up" and won by a land slide. Management is not happy.
