Or on, as the case may be. I don't know how long this is going to work, so visit sooner rather than later:

1. Go to vogue.co.uk (http://www.vogue.co.uk/). If you have a script-blocking add-on, temporarily disable it for the site.
2. Hit the arrow keys in this pattern: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right,
3. Type 'b', then 'a'. (No quotes, just hit those keys.)
4. Keep hitting 'a'.
5. Laugh.

Maryn, sharing all the important stuff

Edit: I've just discovered hitting 'a' faster is even better

Wow. That was cool. :D

(I'm being vague so I don't spoil the surprise)

I gotta admit, I don't know what I expected, but it was not that. And I love it.

I'm still trying to figure out if they were hacked by someone with a fine sense of humor or if they did this themselves. I'm sure it's driven a lot of traffic to their site, either way.

My son thinks it was put there intentionally by the coder of the website. He threw out all sorts of ideas why: pay cut, bad holiday bonuses, in-office break up, demotion. He may not have a clue about the coding thing, but the ideas got busy in my mind and caused random giggles to squeak out of my mouth for hours.

I sent the link to my mom, and at first she thought I was mad, but as soon as it worked....:ROFL:

It's the Konami code!

It's not a malicious thing - just an Easter egg. A bit like Googling "recursion" (go on, try it).

In fact, the employer often knows about it and thinks it's pretty funny too.

There's a long history of including Easter Eggs in computer games, for example. I remember in one of the Thief games, there was a room you could find your way into where you could play basketball. Given the game was set in a pseudo-Steampunk world, that was pretty amusing.
