And then I saw the tooltip...."Louis XVI's death"

Very very well done!! Not sure whose idea this is, but if you reveal yourself, there's a cow (with a head) waiting for you!

It took me a minute to get the reference. Very clever. Someone deserves a cow for that.

About seven years ago, I suggested to the moderators we do something like the google doodles, specifically for Halloween that year. I was told it had been done occasionally before, but then several other moderators really ran with the idea.

I know Bear did several mooses...I don't know who did the code that automagically replaces it on certain holidays. But it was a team effort by a lot of folk to implement it - none of the work was done by me.

Fred, a cow for you because it was a great idea!
And one for Bear for his role in designing and implementing it!

Thanks, fred. I'm especially proud of the Moose-o-lantern for Halloween. Ankit was also responsible for a lot of the others, and for adding animations.

And one for Ankit too . I always wondered who did those illustrations - I like them.
