Dumb but funny
4 September 2004 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

OK, so it's got all the dumb hick farm jokes in it, this short is till pretty amusing. Ben Blue is the handyman to the farm family that includes Shemp Howard as one of the sons. Shemp's Dad in the film gives each of his sons $50 (a huge fortune, they think). The older son buys a wife through the mail named Flossie. Shemp buys a cow through the mail named... Flossie. When the woman Flossie arrives, Shemp tells Ben to put her in the barn. When the cow Flossie arrives, the other brother tells Ben to put her in the guest room. Wackiness ensues. But I laughed, so what the heck? Never seen Ben looking so young. And Shemp is timeless -- he always looked the same. Worth checking out.
