Dr. Breign set out for America all the same. Not having a passport and being a rolling brain monster, he was turned away at the port and sent back to the factory in a crate marked "Unknown Freight, Destroy If Unreturnable" which was left unopened until Elliot realized what the box contained, plus 2 hours which were among Elliot's happiest.
The mystery of the fecal Shinola remains unsolved to this day, though Breign, once told about the substance, ordered all his cans of the offending substance shipped to the same port that once denied him entry to the U.S. It was forwarded to the Guggenheim museum by dock worker Piero Manzoni, who claimed it as his own artwork. It resides in their collection to this day where offers at Sotheby's for a single can have gone as high as 124,000 Euros.
