Holy Toledo! After adventures at the University of Toronto and Canada, it was time to return to the United States, this time through the great state of Ohio! "I've never seen the state that is hi in the middle and round on both ends," mused NOT, remembering the old grade school riddle.
Glad to be back in the US, the pair went on a search for liquor and gambling. Alas, a wrong turn had led them to the town of Temperance. Without the vices, however, tempers flared and the duo left as quickly as possible for greener pastures.
NOT was a bit peckish for some New York nosh, but being a duck of limited intelligence he misspelled his desires, and instead of a large bagel, he ended up with a large beagle at Cedar Point Amusement Park.
NOT likes to party. And where better to find the remains of party animals than at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland! "Hmm." mused NOT, "that looks a lot like another glass pyramid I once saw in Paris. Must just be a coincidence." "Hope I Die Before I Quack Old!" he declared.
Now NOT is a duck of educated tastes - he likes hanging around institutes of higher learning. And Ohio was no exception. This trip saw him check out Oberlin, and his host Bill Stackman (formerly of Tufts).
And Ohio State in Columbus, now home of an old film series friend - Becky Schoenberg. Luckily she didn't need to check him out at her school - the School of Veterinary Medicine.
