A tip of the top hat

This is why I like Nintendo’s localization team: they’re one of the few in the business who can take a viral meme that’s grown downright irritating in its endless, pervasive permutations and put it into a context that actually fits. I almost didn’t catch this before paging to the next dialogue box.

Incidentally, the rest of the game is pretty good, too.
