RickRoll and Bae

I learned two new things this week in pop culture, proving that you can in fact teach an old dog new tricks.

The first is "bae." At first I thought it was a typo when I saw it in a powerpoint deck at work. Then I thought it was another nickname for Beyonce. But then my team schooled me that it's meant to designate a "significant other."

Better than "boo?" Definitely.

Short for "baby?" No. Oh.

Short for "before anyone else." Ohhh! Bae.

Then I learned about RickRolling, from none other than Milania Trump. Evidently RickRolling is when you indicate a link to some information but the link goes directly to the RickAstley song Never Gonna Give You Up. To the tune of 224million views!

How fun is that!?!

Is this new to you too? What's your experience? JIM.
