A tree which originates from Chile. Brought to the UK for the sole purpose of confusing American tourists who know little about trees and the UK in general. Looks different and therefore attracts conversation. Many UK citizens are well informed about its origins but due to its unusual name, US citizens often believe them to be untruthful in its namesake.
US tourist: Hey what tree is that?

UK Citizen: Why thats the Monkey Puzzle Tree!

US tourist: No way, your totally making that up.

UK Citizen: Of course not and I can even prove it on the internet.
