** The JokeItem "egg" only gives a flat +9 to CPS [[BilingualBonus because the French words for "egg" and "nine" rhyme]].

to:

** The JokeItem "egg" only gives a flat +9 to CPS [[BilingualBonus because the French words for "egg" and "nine" rhyme]].CPS.



** Easter Mode adds another in "egg." Other upgrades from Easter give things like a +1% multiplier to every other type of production (including other multipliers, potentially huge), increases to clicking power, or reduced building prices. However, "egg" gives +9 to production. Not +9%, not +9 with any multiplier outside of the usual multipliers... it literally just increases production by nine. It costs 100 trillion to purchase, has no upgrades to improve it, and you don't even need to purchase it (there's an achievement related to it, but unlocking the ability to purchase it is all that's required). It exists solely for a {{Pun}}... [[BilingualBonus in French]].
*** WordOfGod states this is unintentional, however.
--> [8/27/14 2:51:37 PM] Orteil: oh yeah actually
--> [8/27/14 2:51:41 PM] Orteil: that wasn't intended
--> [8/27/14 2:52:04 PM] Orteil: I make a lot of puns that go unnoticed but people have been reading way too much into egg

* AuthorAppeal: White chocolate macadamia nut cookies. The flavor text for their upgrade even describes them as "Orteil's Favortie"

* NoFairCheating: Averted; there's even a shadow achievement for using a certain tricky method to directly modify the number of cookies on hand. The text does discourage it, though. Inverted with "Uncanny Clicker," a normal achievement that all but requires an autoclicker.

* ScienceIsBad: Parodied - all technological advancements (including {{UsefulNotes/Alchemy}} and TimeTravel) are inexplicably directed towards converting more and more of the universe into cookies, the fabric of reality be damned. And the so-called "research facility" is a front for a cult of old ladies attempting to summon [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu-grandmas]].

* {{Antimatter}}: Added in version 1.036 is the Antimatter Condenser, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin condenses the antimatter of the universe into cookies]], according to the description.

Then again, the Cookie Clicker universe's physics don't seem to be very much like our own in any case.[[/note]]

* SuperOCD: One news ticker item claims [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall this is the reason behind your building decisions]], rather than any sort of business sense. Given what you need to do for some of the achievements, this is most likely true.


Added DiffLines:

*** Oh, and they are lead by the '''[[{{Pun}} Elder]]''' [[OlderGods Gods]].

*** Ironically, it's cookie now has a practical use: It spawns Golden Cookies more frequently.



* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: Your cookies are so good that the whole universe revolves around them.

* {{Jerkass}}: The Antigrandmas are described as being mean in their FlavorText.

to:

* {{Jerkass}}: The Antigrandmas are described as being mean in their FlavorText. Which make sense.


Added DiffLines:

** LethalJokeItem: The Fool's Biscuit originally did jack diddly squat. However, now it spawns Golden Cookies more often.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: The player character... like... '''[[UpToEleven HOLY SHIT]]''': You start as a unpopular loser who can't even bake a decent cookie, and eventually become an '''ALL POWERFUL GOD WHO CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE, TIME, SPACE AND REALITY, MAKING IT ALL A COOKIE! EVENTUALLY BECOMING CAPABLE OF CAUSING THE APOCALYPSE!''' And all this because [[DisproportionateRetribution nobody would eat your cookies]].
