    I love Easter eggs. I put the konami code into a greenfield project for a workplace. No one checked the commits, it's probably still there xD

    A site we maintain at work has discussion platform. As soon as you reply to a discussion the back-end saves the reply and sends back the necessary information to instantly display it and put it in the right position. However if you had a role of Help Desk or Programmer(except me of course), instead of sending back what you typed, it would send back the quote from Billy Madison. It would replace Mr. Madison with Mr or Mrs and their last name.

    The quote:
    "Mr. Madison, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    I once had to implement a superb button somewhere deep inside the website sitemap that the page itself would get maybe 40 visits in a month... but this super important button had to be added there asap.

    After testing there was a small bug to fix, and then I also added a delay so that after 5 minutes confetti would start falling down the window (button would open a new window) Still don't think anyone has noticed it till this very day lol

    My Easter eggs can only be seen by developers. My apis always have an endpoint returning 413 I’m a teapot. I also often have places with stupid code like assigning !false to a variable

    I put an ASCII unicorn somewhere in all my projects.

    Every bug in production is just an Easter egg 😤

    @not-sure FU!
    O get this was introduced as a joke, but since devs at npm it would be funny to use it as a real response code. I already lost ny time on figuring out how to get past thru this. Just DON'T!
