wow what fancy dining, 20 August 2002

In this short the stooges are exterminators accidently hired by a rich lady looking for fancy dining tips. The stooges think the lady has termites in her house so they go over and check it out first they eat and the funny parts come when the other people at the table start to copy the stooges, that are also bad eaters. The funniest part is when Curly starts throwing peas in his mouth and everyone else does the same. Overall a good short.
