I Found an Easter Egg!!!
I use Nova Launcher so I am not sure how others can find this, but hear it goes:
When you select new shortcut in the Nova menu there is an option for activities which is a way to create a shortcut to specific processes and apps that do not have a shortcut. Well I was looking in the System UI processes for the power settings menu when I noticed a process that had an icon at the top of the list.
It is called Nyandroid and it is a little green android dude wearing and ice cream sandwhich shirt facing sideways. When you make an icon of it, and tap it, a screen saver like animation shows a whole bunch of ice cream sandwhich shirt wearing android dudes swimming left-to-right across the screen above a dark blue background with low-res retro pixel stars.
Kinda cool, kinda pointless. Thought you should know. . .

Download QuickShortcutMaker from Play.
Search for Nyandroid in Activities.
Make shortcut. It helps to have an "open" slot on one of the Sense launcher pages.
Go to launcher screen. Press on the new shortcut icon. I named the shortcut "Egg."
Piece of cake.

What happened is that it is an Easter egg built into stock ics, but HTC removed the code that starts the animation when you tap the android version. However, the animation itself is built in and can be accessed via a shortcut on your desktop. If you guys ever try an aosp Rom (or stock on another device) you will see it when tapping the model number.
