Storyline

The stooges are icemen who, while delivering ice to a house on the top of a high hill, destroy several cakes that a wealthy man is trying to bring home. When their antics cause the servants at their customer's house to quit, the boys are hired to take their place and prepare a dinner party. What they don't know is that the party is for the man whose cakes they wrecked. When Moe's gas filled cake explodes and the man realizes who they are, they must leave in a hurry.

the best short

This is the funniest stooge short, Moe, Larry and curly deliver ice to a woman then she is upset because she doesn't have a cake for her husband so the stooges bake a cake and also make a turkey. The funniest part is when curly shaves the ice and he's talking to it and everything its great.
