  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference is revealed when a player uses a herring (cooked or uncooked) with any tree. The text says: "This is not the mightiest tree in the forest" There is speculation, however, that the mightiest tree does, in fact, exist. Also, if used with the Grand Tree the text replies "It can't be done!" in reference to King Arthur's response.
