    Well, no, more like an 'easter egg' - a small built-in surprise to a
    computer program. Apple was rather famous for many of theirs, built-in
    and accessible via special keystrokes. Game programs are rife with them.

    And, I am not surprised Word only has them in myth. The last thing I
    would ever expect is not the Spanish Inquisition, but humor in a
    microsoft program.
