There's something special about finding an easter egg in a video game or a movie. Someone hid it there for a reason -- to send a message -- and it needs an audience to fulfill its purpose. Without your discovery, it would be like a scream underwater. Pointless.

The beautiful thing is there are more easter eggs than we might think. And they exist not only in media but in real life as well. How do we know this? Thanks to the subreddit r/IRLEasterEggs, of course! This online community is the place where people go to share pictures of their best finds.

Although we at Bored Panda already covered it, the gang keeps stumbling across so many cool gems, we have to make an update!

Even though the name of the subreddit says it all, the moderators still need to curate the content.

"'Not an IRL easter egg' is something that doesn't meet the criteria of what an easter egg is (it wasn't a hidden secret in the real, breathing world by someone for you to find)," they specify in the rules. And these things are not welcome.

Digital easter eggs, like screenshots or photographs of screens (games, computer software, TV series, DVD menus) on the internet are considered as regular easter eggs and not IRL easter eggs. For such things, the moderators suggest trying r/EasterEggs.

Barcodes are also off-limits. "As fun as it is to advertise the new cute barcode you've found, please send them over to r/barcodes," the moderators say.

If you like real-life easter eggs, give these two a try as well!

It's not called recycling if you burn it, though. The technical term is thermal utilisation, which I find a bit misleading though as it's an euphemism for "we burn it so we don't have to take care of its separation and recycling"
