Are you sure those are the only steps? Where is the picture supposed to appear?

This egg is for the "Stickies" program, not Mac OS (some number that I don't care about).

This doesn't work. I use Mac OS 7.5.1 and nothing happened. I hit Stickies from the Apple menu, then File>New Note and followed the steps as typed, but nothing.

Type it exactly into a blank note. That's where the picture will appear. I use System 7.5(.0) and this worked.

The system doesn't matter, and yes it does work. I just did it on system 9.1.

I am running System 7.5.5 on Basilisk II and it didn't work for me. I had to press Enter/Return after typing "Antler!". Hope this helps for anyone who's having the problem. (Also, it is recommended to make your sticky BIG!)

This egg will not work if you made a note, typed in it, and deleted its comments; this will only work on a completely fresh note.

This is verified to work on System 7.5.3. Open a new sticky note by clicking on the Apple menu, then Stickies. Type in Antler! including the capital "A" and the exclamation point. Then press . If it does not work with one sticky, close that sticky (do not save it), then click File > New Sticky and try again. I think it must also be typed with some haste (i.e. don't let five seconds elapse between each keypress).
