Just had a thought the other day: "Timmy the Monkey" could very well be a nod to ThinkGeek's mascot (as seen here (http://www.thinkgeek.com/cubegoodies/toys/5bb0/action/21047f0/)).
Sure rings true with the inflatable Timmy the Monkey found at LucasArts HQ (displayed at WorldOfMI).

Has anyone else seen possible "undocumented" or obscure in-jokes in LucasArts' games (i.e. not commonly known, and not displayed at LucasFans old site)?

Or good references to LucasArts in other companies' games?

Just curious....

Not sure if that monkey itself was made by Thinkgeek. I think they ordered it from a company who makes them and had them put on the Thinkgeek logo on the shirt.

Why? Because I've got a similar monkey with a different tshirt logo. (can't remember which, had to do with smart card technology)

I've got a feeling that if anyone on these boards found any obscure injokes in old LA games that weren't widely known or put in some fan website, they would be by now.
