- The Thatched Roof Cottage's description states, "It would be tragic to accidentally burninate your thatched roof cottage". This is likely a reference to Homestar Runner, a Flash-animated Internet cartoon series. Specifically the episode titled "Dragon" in which Strong Bad (a character in the series) gets an e-mail asking him to draw a dragon. Strong Bad names the dragon he draws Trogdor the Burninator. At the end of the episode, Strong Bad sings a song about Trogdor the Burninator with the following lyrics: "Burninating the countryside. Burninating the peasants. Burninating all the peoples... and their thatched roof cottages!! Thatched roof Cottages!!"
