This is the 2nd new story. There are many hidden secrets tucked away in the media we consume, placed there by mischievous - or perhaps just bored - programmers and developers. They're known as "Easter eggs" - and the web has them in abundance.
Andy Clarke, who owns Wales-based web design studio Stuff & Nonsense, has his own simple definition: "It's something unexpected that makes you smile." "It's fun to slip these things in and wonder if people will notice them, and how long it will take," he tells the BBC, remembering one of his own eggs, in which users could shoot a beloved mascot on a local council's website. They never found out. Then the rest of the story should be hidden out of the way.
