A Red Herring
was a type of fish. It was also a term used to describe something that is distracting but of no real purpose to anyone.
It was found outside the kitchen of the Scumm Bar on a small dock. To get it, Guybrush Threepwood had to first scare away a seagull.
Used as payment at a toll bridge on Melee Island. It was given to a guard troll who blocked the passage.
