Hello. How do you understand phrase "Burrs, limpets, and seccotine also ran"?

Mrs. Jack. Curious, when you think of it, how one hurls away the good things of life. What would you give, Teddy, at this moment for one of the Jungle Monarch’s long, dull, stodgy dinners, off the guaranteed gold plate which has been in the Panter family since 1905? or even a Panter’s peerless pork-pie?

Darkside. They tell me Chicago’s a fool to the Panter packing-rooms. I have a profound dislike for that feller.

Lord Teddy. Same here. Always after one, too. Can’t shake him off.

Mrs. Jack. Burrs, limpets, and seccotine also ran. Well, as I was saying, one hurls away the good things of life. <...>
