This is probably my favourite Keaton short. From the opening shot to the very end it is full of humour and imagination. The breakfast scene in particular stands out, demonstrating immaculate timing between Keaton and Joe Roberts. The film runs at a fast and funny pace, never seeming to falter at any point. I could watch this over and over again and still find it funny. 10 out of 10
