Speaking of inside jokes from the pages of EGM; I’ve always wondered who was responsible for putting the hidden messages inside the legal mumbo jumbo at the bottom of next months preview page. As far as I can tell these were put in the magazine during the more recent years of EGM, and I never heard anyone else bring it up over the years.

I always thought that maybe one month the message would be to call a number and win fabulous prizes, but alas it never happened.

For example, the message in the nearest issue I have at hand EGM 219: Every Friday should be McFlurry Friday. Mmmm, ice cream…

Who can reveal the source of these hidden messages to us? Is the person who put these into the mag now a part of Bitmob? Step foward and be known!
