  • Garbage! A town called Islip, New York produced 3,168 tons of garbage. Gino Stroffolino put it all on a barge to be taken away and buried.
  • Gino told the Captain to take the trash to North Carolina. They refused to allow the barge in their harbor.
  • The barge was sent south to New Orleans. The mayor said they had enough of their own trash. He turned the barge away.
  • Cap'n Duffy took the trash to Mexico and they refused to take it. After trying to take it to Belize, Captain Duffy QUIT!
  • On their way home the barge tried two more stops. They both turned him away.
  • The garbage started to get real funky and a judge said the trash had to be taken to the incinerator in Brooklyn. They burned the trash and gave it like a present back to ISLIP. JUSTICE was served.
