You beat me to it! I was just coming to post about that.

I like how Googlers know people monitor that file and stick a treat in there for geeks, and not just on April Fools' day either.

Jokes in code are the new doodles...

It's just funny until they come for your website's brains ... :-)

That's OK John. Google has no brains! :-)

google.com/brains

<< www.google.com/brains – does not exist. >>

Perhaps the zombies got there first...

[put at-character here]Tony See?! It could happen to your site too, better watch out!

Edit: ruscoe.net/brains "file not found" – too late :-(
(I like the search box though – nice integration!)

I think Google Blogoscoped was the first to notice. We know that people watch our robots.txt file, so we thought that folks would enjoy a nice Halloween easter egg. :)
