Some days I am very jealous of guys that can do anything. I have a neighbor who can weld, plumb, do carpentry, electrical wiring, motor repair, and just about everything else. He is retired now, and takes it easy, but back in the day he worked for the small town we live in and was the 'go-to' man for any problem that they couldn't handle any other way. I, on the other hand, am very fortunate that I can make nice web pages, because I cannot do much else with any degree of excellence. The good news is that, unlike Edgar Kennedy in this comedy short, I know my limitations, and am very happy that there are skilled people at hand that I can hire to do the work that needs done. And it's great to have a neighbor who likes to help a bit when he can :~)
In this comedy short, famous motion picture comedian Edgar Kennedy has a broken water heater in his home, and he thinks that he can replace it for much less money than the local plumber would charge. Of course, this is a comedy, so we know from the git-go that much pandemonium will happen as he tries his best to save a nickel. You won't need a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with melted butter for this one, it will be over before the first kernel pops, but have some tissues ready, because you may laugh until you cry!
