Contra Code Easter Egg in Google Reader

What does the sequence UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A... mean to you? If you're an old-school Nintendo kid, you'll remember that code from the game Contra. Well, try entering that code while logged in to Google Reader and you'll see a ninja background in your feeds list and all unread items set to 30, which is the number of extra lives you get in Contra when entering the code. When you sign out or re-enter the key sequence, it will go away. I wonder what other Google easter eggs are hiding out there. (Source: DS Fanboy)

Awesome, just tested it in Google Reader and it worked for me! Happy memories of Contra! The world is a safer place because of the battles I fought in that jungle.
