"This house has sho' gone crazy!", 15 August 2013
Author: Zbigniew_Krycsiwiki from United States

Pure hilarity, as the trio poses as plumbers ("Three of the best plumbers that ever plumbed a plumb!") in a mansion to avoid the police. Chaos follows, as Moe bashes pipes in the basement, Larry digs up two thirds of the yard, and Curly basically encases himself in a cage made of pipes in the upstairs shower, which he also quickly turns into a wading pool. The owners of the house decide they've had enough and call the police, or try to, anyway, as their telephone turns into a faucet spraying water at them. The cook has the funniest of many lines, after a light bulb explodes with water, the burners on the stove top turn into a sprinkler system, and the entire kitchen ends up underwater: "This house has sho' gone crazy!"
