The claimed Easter Eggs no longer seem to be working.

One Easter Egg was a Bing search for [hiybbprqag]
bing.com/search?q=hiybbprqag
which is a made-up word that Google used to catch out Bing using Google results as ranking clues. Bing's Easter Egg was a onebox stating "whiner(common)".

The other Easter Egg was a Bing search for [more evil than satan himself]
bing.com/search?q=more+evil+th ...
for which Bing was returning a onebox stating "10^100".

Ironically, if you do a search for ["more evil than satan"], with the quotes, on either Google on Bing
bing.com/search?q=%22more+evil ...
google.com/search?q=%22more+ev ...
the first result on either search engine says "Google More Evil Than Satan".
