Programmers are funny people. Really, they have a sense of humor if you look hard enough. The best proof of programming humor are Easter Eggs. No, I am not talking about dyed eggs that soon become egg salad. I am talking about hidden features or “events” that programmers purposely hide in their code for their own entertainment, and to the surprise of any user that finds them. Easter eggs have made popular appearances in more than just software, we sometimes see them in movies, art and literature.
Today, I found an Easter egg in WordPress. Below is the video of what I found. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. You should probably full screen the video to see all the features close up.
A big thanks is in order for the WordPress core developers for including this fun little surprise. Apparently this Easter egg has appeared in WordPress since version 2.6.If you thought this post was half way interesting, you might want to follow @joehall on Twitter. Hes a total nut bag over there, but worth a few laughs.
