I'd heard that Moot had been asked to testify in the trial against the hacker who broke into Sarah Palin's email, but quite honestly, I'd forgotten about the whole thing since all the hubbub was almost 2 years ago. However, I found a transcript of the testimony on Business Insider and it is hilarious. The first section of it sounds like Internet Forums for Dummies. Then it moves into net lingo, during which poor Moot is requested to explain the "Rickroll". I am of the firm belief that the Rickroll cannot be explained. It must be experienced. I am also of the firm belief that there is absolutely no reason whatsoever that the word "Rickroll" should be uttered in a courtroom.
