    I don’t know why I find this so humorous, but I do.

    On a side note, can’t believe your site is already listed in Google if you search for friedrolled.

    A shameless pimp, but I forgive you. I sense I coming fury of comments though.

    That’s really funny. Though, I fully expected something like this when they launched the affiliate network. Hell, it might even work out for ‘em.

    Very clever, though I can understand why you’d want to make a little money off Basecamp referrals after loosing all that very expensive software yesterday!

    Yeah, that happens to me all the time ;)

    So wait, if there’s such thing as a live rickroll, then what would a live friedroll be like?

    I wonder how quickly you could become the #1 search result for “alveyroll”.

    I have no idea what an alveyroll actually is, but I hope it has avocado.

    Alveys love avocado.
