Konami Code for Websites

Unlike most folks who know what the Konami Code is, I first encountered it while playing Lifeforce and not Contra. Regardless of which game first exposed us to the code, I think those of us in the know all get giddy when we hear the chant of “up, up, down, down, left, right, left right, B, A, start,” don’t we?

Last week, someone hacked ESPN’s Website—it’s since been fixed—to display unicorns and rainbows when the code was entered. Little did I know at the time, but there is a whole Website dedicated to the discussion of Websites that do something funky when you enter the code. And now that I know, man, I have to figure out how to make something cool happen here on Geek Force Five when the code is entered. Any suggestions?
