Question Mark uses machines for every type of crime, but the Fat Fury foils his efforts. After 10,416 curses, Question Mark uses his Locate Things Machine to find the Fat Fury and his Source of His Powers Machine to discover that his Destroying All Lollipops machine will disable his adversary. Then Question Mark unleashes a Fat Fury (Phony Phat Phury) robot that everyone mistakes for our hero. Without his lollipops, the Fat Fury is helpless, but for the aid of a mouse he helped early in the story.

Herbie's father feels like a failure because he can't get Herbie to lose weight. Herbie enlists the help of President Johnson and Vice President Humphrey who call his father to Washington.

Johnson appoints Herbie's dad Ambassador to Hongadingia, with his first big job to end a war between the Hissians and the Pigturtles. Herbie becomes skinny after he is bit by a Hissian and his father becomes fat after he is bit by a Pigturtle.
