I originally planned it, then got tired of changing my mind about every aspect of what it should do and dropped it. But having rewritten it at least twice since I reconsidered, it would be easy to add in...

There, added points.

The trickiest thing was where to put the points. An independent element was my first thought but I just couldn't get it placed correctly. Then I thought I could stick it in the element itself, but the scaleX that it's doing was reversing the text. Couldn't override the transform: property no matter what I tried - then I accidentally discovered I could transform:inherit which would either scaleX(1*1) or scaleX(-1*-1) and resolve the problem.

I have now spent multiple hours on this. All that for just one day...

You have Elon Musk's duck tweet to thank for this idea. Otherwise I would have done something boring like change the site to say "ASP Freaks". Or "Python Freaks: Where Whitespace Is Important".

Yup. Clicking spawns one immediately and another after a few seconds. Also fixed it so you can't click the same one multiple times for extra points.

(animals spawn automatically up to a limit and only if the tab/window is open, and despawn automatically after a few minutes)

Unrelated: someday I need to put a Konami code easter egg on here.

I give up. Just getting towards a 500 score when I accidentally clicked the Activity tab - back to zero!. I know, I should get a life.

I should put like a bomb in there, something to get penalized for clicking.

With all the effort you are putting into this it sounds like more than just an April 1st event. Christmas with elves, reindeer and santas perhaps? Easter eggs and bunnies? Thanksgiving turkey shoot?

Yeah, I don't want to set too much of a precedent in terms of event quality.

Bombs, and I could put the total score in a cookie...

Oh damn, PHP Freaks: Battle Royale would have been a great idea!

Slightly less unrelated than planned.
