Rick-rolling your teacher

I’ve gotten papers with little comments or song lyrics embedded in the prose.  I assumed they were little tests to see if I was actually reading the paper.  I note it as a technique of surveillance or accountability.

Thanks to openculture.org for the image.

This is a whole extra level of thoughtfulness.  Rick-rolling without really altering the content of your paper.

I wonder if this was really a paper for this class or was it made as a gag?  

Shout out to openculture.org for the story.
