A search for

wordpress "this post is super awesome"

with the quotes revealed some blogs about the "Surprise Me" option that has been added to Wordpress. Checking "Surprise Me" enables this checkbox on posts.

A lot of the posts mention that if you check this option something happens after you hit "Publish" but are coy about what that "something" is.

The comments on this thread on the WordPress.com forums indicates you get to see a video.
