I am pretty sure everyone on the Web is familiar with the term Rickroll seeing as most of us have clicked on a link only to be faced with Rick Ashley’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up”.
It would seem though that a reddit contributor by the name of Mayniac182 didn’t believe that his professor in computer studies actually reads any of the essays submitted for the class. So he decided to have a little bit of fun and hide the lyrics to “Never Gonna Give You Up” in his essay.
Everyone in my computing class is certain the teacher doesn’t actually go through ANY work we hand in. So I’ve been up for the last few hours crafting this. The first paragraph started as an idea to use ridiculously complex words to confuse him (English is his second language), do that for a bit then just go Fresh Prince on him, but that got boring.
If you want to read through it all and figure out what I’ve done to it (aside from writing complete bullshit), read through it now and don’t read the next line.
Read the first word of every line that touches the left margin (so everything that isn’t indented). It’s taken eight cups of coffee, but I finally did it. Rickrolling my computing teacher in style.
EDIT: I handed it in just over an hour ago. Next lesson is on Friday, but I doubt he’ll ever give it back. If he does, it will probably just have a few ticks on it or something.
I’ll do a follow up if he finds the Rickrolling though.
Here is his essay with the song lyrics included:
