"When asked for a comment, Mr. Ornage said 'I now own 35 warehouses full of tree sap! What the hay am I supposed to do with that much tree sap?! I'm ruined!"
That's a lot of maple syrup. He could probably get quite a few IHOP promotions in that one.
If the "tree sap" he happens to have in those warehouses is in fact resin (it's like tree sap but it's located closer to the bark of the tree than the softer center of the tree, where sap is), then that's even better. He may be able to make a compound called rosin out of it, which has a good variety of application (adhesives, vanishes, perfumes, soft drink preservative, and, strangely enough, on bowes for bowed instruments (such as violin and cello bows) to help them play more clearly (bows with not enough rosin will produce a fainter and duller sound from the instrument).
Only reason I even know the above is because I played the violin for a short time as a kid (never really got into practicing it enough, and eventually moved on to other things when it was clear there wasn't as much interest).
Err... I'm not really where speaking of all these random facts is coming from exactly.
You know, it's surprising more comics and other fan stuff don't make the rather obvious connection here, what with Babs and Aunt & Uncle Orange all living in Manehattan. I guess the differing accents and apparent social class might throw people off, but then again there's Rarity as compared to the rest of her own family.
Also, while the Oranges were kind of snootishly posh in AJ's cutie mark flashback, their attendance of the recent family reunion at Sweet Apple Acres suggests they might have mellowed out a bit in the intervening years.
