Jenny McCarthy gets Rickroll’d

As you may remember, the evening after the Hollywood face of the antivaccine P.R. machine Jenny McCarthy was scheduled to take part in a web chat. At the time, I suggested sending questions in to the Oprah website, to see if any would get through. I’m sure there was some serious screening and vetting of possible questions; so I suggested trying to word them in such a way as to indicate Jenny’s ignorance without triggering the censors. Apparently never was heard a discouraging word in the web chat (big surprise there), but apparently one rather clever wag did manage to get a question through:

Heh. Obviously a fan of cheesy 1980s pop music was behind this! In case you don’t know, this is what Rickrolling is.
