I get all my ideas in Switzerland near the Forka Pass. There is
a little town called Gletch, and two thousand feet up above
Gletch there is a smaller hamlet called Uber Gletch. I go there
on the fourth of August every summer to get my cuckoo clock
repaired. While the cuckoo is in the hospital, I wander around
and talk to the people in the streets. They are very strange
people, and I get my ideas from them.  -- Dr. Seuss
