"The Nut's Tropes"

  • Determinator: The nut survives nutcrackers, hammers, nails, seemingly ANYTHING that can be thrown at it.
  • Didn't See That Coming: A squirrel proves to be the one hazard the nut can not escape.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: The nut lands on a box of dynamite, a match escapes from a matchbox and lights the dynamite and there is a rockslide, but, the nut survives.
