Oregonian Hot Link Hi Jinks

When I heard this story by Eyder Peralta on All Things Considered the other day I immediately wondered if our own General Assembly could ever pull off such a cool bipartisan political prank. In their own version of the rickrolling prank, a bipartisan collection of Oregonian legislators agreed to work a single line from Rick Astleys 1987 hit, “Never Gonna Give You Up” into a speech from the House floor. They agreed “that the lawmaker on the floor could not ask for extra time and had to work in the phrase assigned to them in a way that was germaine to what they were talking about.”

They pulled it off on April 1st.
