Government priorities — the Rickroll?

You know an Internet meme has come full circle when the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is using it or, as I suspect, one of her interns.

What am I talking about? Feast your eyes on:

Just some cats around the capital, oh wait what’s happening to the music? A familiar 80s tune appears, this has happened to me before…but the Speaker of the House? I look at the channel again, it says NancyPelosi and it looks official. How can this be?

Rick Astley is before my eyes doing his strange wiggling dance that I have seen so many times before when my friend links me a “cool YouTube video,” as a trick. And then I hear it, the lyrics I know by heart: “We’re no strangers to love…”

It’s official folks, we’ve just been Rickrolled by Nancy Pelosi. I’m not sure how I feel about this. I haven’t been a big Pelosi fan anyway but this just sort of leaves me in awe.

By the way, if you don’t know what a “Rickroll” is, the video gives some helpful information.
