“Easter Eggs” in Academic Philosophy

Secret features or qualities, hidden messages, subtle references, often humorous—what’s come to be known as “Easter Eggs”—appear in various media, from video games, to movies to Apple’s Siri, to even some recent high profile resignation letters. What about in academic philosophy writings?

In your readings have you come across any secret, sly, subtle, or stuck-in-a-footnote messages worth bringing to wider attention?

I have an example in mind. I’ll post it after the weekend, but if someone mentions it in a comment before then they’ll win a $20 Amazon gift card.
