Meta Minute

  • Shakespeare will come up again in Minute 56.
  • The largest monotreme alive today is the Western long-beaked echidna, weighing in at up to 16.5 kg (36 lbs). The largest monotreme currently known to have ever lived is the extinct echidna Zaglossus hacketti. It probably weighed about 30 kg (66 lbs) and was 1 m long. So no, there is not always a bigger monotreme[1].


  • Pete: "No comebackie" Alex: "—unless you want to get pounded to death."
  • Alex: "What nerds are we?!"
  • Pete: "Jar Jar why were you banished?" (As Jar Jar without the accent) "You ever see Othello? It's kinda like that except I'm clumsy."
  • Alex: "Are you down with the OPC Killer?"
  • Pete: "There's always a bigger monotreme"
