What are some cool things hidden in Pale Fire?

I'm almost finished reading Nabokov's Pale Fire. What cool puzzles or twists am I missing in the text? I know a lot of ink has been spent on who Kinbote really is and what the "actual" plot is. But this doesn't interest me since there is no definitive answer afaik. I'm looking for the Easter eggs e.g. Nabokov at one point wrote a poem where the first letters of the lines spelled out a specific word. Are there some unexpected double meanings? Literary trapdoors?
