The Real Best Part of Thanksgiving

Um, I blatantly forgot what was clearly the best part of this Thanksgiving:  the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade got rick-rolled...

For those of you not in the know, rick-rolling is an internet phenomenon where someone posts a seemingly trustworthy link, but which really leads to the YouTube video of Rick Astley's 1987 hit, "Never Gonna Give You Up".  The Wikipedia definition is hilarious.  Those who have been publicly rick-rolled include the Church of Scientology, President-elect Barack Obama, anyone who's ever read the xkcd webcomic, all people who clicked on YouTube's featured videos on April Fools day, and now the entire United States of America.
