Stop Using the Term 'Easter Eggs' Already

Can anybody write a title without using a trope anymore?

The term Easter Egg originated as a way of expressing some hidden element in a video game. Nowadays it is used to refer to any sort of reference within a larger media item. The term has been used to death. The world is not constantly trying to trick you. You are not a secret explorer tasked with finding hidden gems. And it is possible to write a title, nay entire articles, without stooping to sensationalist claims and overused tropes. Stop dumbing the world down with your stupid bullshit.

“I agree that nonsense makes perfect sense and that I am the Dungherder. I can put my foot right in the pile and get my slice-o-the pie.”
