    Unlike Rickroll, duckroll is original and funny. It is made of pwn and win. To “duckroll” is to intentionally misdirect people on a chan imageboard to a different thread containing a picture of a duck with wheels, or of an animated gif of a toy duck rolling across the screen. The overall intent is to piss everyone off via deception.

    this pic is “Duck Roll”

    in which a link to somewhere (such as a specific picture or news item) would instead lead to a thread or site containing an edited picture of a duck with wheels. The user at that point is said to have been “duckrolled”.

    this lead to internet meme “Rick Roll”

    The pic shown refers to DuckRoll, sending a link to a photo of a duck with wheels. It lead to rickrolling, the practice of sending someone a link that unexpectedly leads to the music video for Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”
