MSE should have it's own Community Bulletin like the rest of the SE sites do. It would basically just be hot questions of the main MSE site, instead of the meta (which doesn't exist here, obviously)... but it would also allow us to pin things like this: What happens when you plug a UPS into itself? as a pinned event.
We're working on this. MSE does have a community bulletin, however featured posts here are going to circulate to child-meta sites under their respective community bulletins, so we have to be sort of selective in what we feature here (implementation on this is not fully complete, but that's what we're doing).
While it would be nice for that post to get more immediate exposure (so more folks can join in the fun) - it's not something that I'd want to feature, and syndicate to child meta sites across the network, out of fear that people would train themselves to ignore things we syndicate in the future.
We do have the ability to manually put things in this bulletin, but again - that isn't something I'd use the ability to do. Tweeting it later should have the desired effect, and I've linked to it in chat - when folks get back from lunch I'm certain you'll see some more activity on it.
It is Fry Day, after all :)
An aside -
Thinking about this more, I'd like to think about this more.
