Messing with Photoshop users’ heads (literally)
Yes, sometimes we just want to see whether you’re paying attention. A Photoshop CS6 “JDI” feature was to show, at long last, a badge on layers that had “Blend If” properties assigned.

Man did this freak out the beta testers. “There’s a dude’s face in my layers?!” Mission accomplished. :-)
