I like reading about Easter Eggs in various stories because I tend to miss them, at least in a good story. I think most of us do. Some of these are simple jokes, or trying hard to make a room look as natural as possible. However, there are some that are simple a case of OCD or a cheap shot at your boss that you don’t want him to realize because you still need the job. Cracked.com contributors Veronica Dymond, Robert Rosati, and Carmen Burana tracked down five such Easter eggs. See how the next Batman team-up was foreshadowed, how obsessive Alan Moore and David Gibbons, and Todd McFarlane’s strange obsession with Felix The Cat, plus a swipe at Rupert Murdock and the connection between crossword puzzles and D-Day.
