Well, well, well, what have we here?
Trust me folks...this is all leading somewhere...to something...
I admit that the idea for this strip had been festering for a while now, but I just didn't know how to integrate it into the current story arc. Then this past Friday afternoon, friend of the Checkered Man, D.M. Rolfe (www.mightymonocle.com) asked me if I had anything special planned for TOACM for the Easter holiday. Suddenly, the light bulb clicked and lo and behold this strip was born. So if you like the strip give Mr. Rolfe and I a pat on the back, but if you hate it...well, it was all his fault! I kid, I kid!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke or feature in a work such as a computer program, web page, video game, movie, book or crossword. The term was coined—according to Warren Robinett—by Atari after they were pointed to the secret message left by Robinett in the game Adventure. It draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many Western nations as well as the last Russian imperial family's tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Carl Fabergé which contained hidden surprises.
