Play ALONE on a Saturday night for a nice comment. It gives you something funny with three people also. BTW: There's a configuration file in the Jack directory that actually has a listing of all the holidays and times where the announcer will say something. You can fiddle with it if you like, you can't do anything but screw up the easter egg at worst. And if you do, re-install the game (though you'll lose high scores). Here is where I found the text file for YDKJ 5/OFFLINE. All the other volumes should be similiar except with obvious changes in the folder names.

Cookie will wish you a Happy New Year too, and if you're playing alone, he will make some type of a comment that it's sad you have to be alone on New Years. (it's an insaulting comment).

I was playing this on New Year's Eve, 1999 - got a really sarcastic comment tailored to the turn of the century.

I've only got the demo so I don't get all of those but I do get most of them. When I first realized it, I was playing on Christmas Eve and had spent the evening reminding my family so constantly. Then, when I started to play, he suddenly said "Ooh, it's Christmas Eve - isn't it exciting!" We all just burst out laughing but I got a shock! But after fiddling round with the files I found the cookie. By the way, when's Coming Out Day? I imagine he has something particularly scathing for then! I tell ya, he could give Anne Robinson a run for her money! I'm not sure if it's an egg though but still, very entertaining! And does WWTBAM really have that cookie? I never realized before!
