Your Wednesday Moments of Zen

First, the Warcrack dances:

Second, one of the things I realy, really like about the internet is how certain things can go “cyber” and become cultural (subcultural, actually- most people on the street would look at you funny if you said you had been Rickrolled) phenomenons. The newest one is the Rickroll, which is popular on forums that dorks like me frequent. People will allegedly post a link to an authoritative video source, users will click on the link, and what they will find is the following:

The intertrons is a funny, funny thing.

    Rick Roll may be newer and funnier, but how about some props for the good old-fashioned Duck Roll?

    Zen is becoming a new and interesting feature, but I have to wait until I get home to view it, because it’s not websensible.

    I had no idea that Rick Astley invented white dancing.

    What were the production values on that video? Buck ten? Buck twenty five?

    Re: Rickrolling

    At least it’s not the old gag. That one got me a couple of times before I stopped clicking comment links on Stupid Videos.

    Re: WoW Dance: Thank God they didn’t include the female human dance. I may have had to blow up my computer for accidentally playing the macarena.

    A bit OT, but since Warcraft came up, I thought I’d post the following: Boy, 10, visits Blizzard courtesy of Make a Wish Foundation. Just a real touching and cool story about a local kid here in OC who’s been stricken with brain cancer – Blizzard took him in and made him the first outsider to create a new character for the game.

    I’m not into Warcraft, but I am a gamer – always nice to see the gaming community come together for one of their own.
