The idea came from a reference in the final episode to a historic moment during World War II, when U.S. Gen. Anthony McAuliffe said "Nuts" in response to Germans demanding that Americans surrender.So far, more than 18,000 pounds of nuts, worth $24,000, have been ordered online for the grassroots effort.
