The Gravatar Easter Egg

So I was reading another WordPress blog today when I moused over someone’s profile image and got the ubiquitous Gravatar hovercard.

The thing is though, I right-clicked, so as to open it in a new tab.  To my astonishment, every single Gravatar on the page started rotating counterclockwise when I did so, and as far as I can tell, would have continued spinning indefinitely.

It was amusing to watch:

Even the one at the top of the page does it!

So there you have it, folks.  An interesting Easter egg to invoke next time you get bored or to show a friend.  Because who doesn’t love spinny things?
