It\'s very hard for you to have to try to guess what this is about without seeing the movie, and understanding this reference. It could be an \"inside joke\", a reference to something else that was said before. The other thing that comes to mind, is that it may have something to do with drugs, since any owl that would use a candy cane as a walking stick, would have to be smoking something.
