What would Bill do?

So, I neglected to favorite a user's comment pointing to a certain Easter Egg they buried in a news website before they left the job there. This "feature" led to a page which collected all the articles about what proposed legislation intended to do ("Bill would..."), to hilarious results. Can anyone point me to it?

The only reason I did not BestOf that is that I was worried more eyeballs on it might suddenly cause someone to notice it.

I'll be honest, I worried that this might draw too much attention to it, but I neeeeed to share that link to a select group. :)

Heh. Of the three other MeFites I can think of off the top of my head who would have had access to the LJW backend to do anything about it, I don't think any of us would want to take it down. Or have the ability any more, for that matter.

I don't know who's in charge of looking at the analytics these days or whether they'd notice ... but I'll not be sending anyone a head's up.

The legislative season at my job is just about to start up and I will need something to laugh at soon. Thank you.

Somewhat relatedly, there's Florida Man's Twitter stream.
