  • This bee, and the branch as a whole, is most likely a reference to Doctor Who, and the Fourth Doctor (who carried around a bag of jelly babies) in particular. This is indicated by the Latin name of the Timely bee (tempestivus gallifreis, Gallifrey being the Doctor's homeworld, as well as the Doctor being called the oncoming storm (a tempest is a storm) by his greatest enemies, the Daleks), by the combination of Timely and Lordly (i.e. time lord) resulting in doctoral, and the effect that this bee has (heroic.)
