The title invites you to laugh - and this is almost always a guarantee that you won't.
A one-joke spoof of cheesy 50s educational shorts: a terminally unfunny pervert kills his umpteenth prostitute more-or-less accidentally, and is then guided how to dispose of the body by an overly cheerful unfunny narrator. And that might just be the crux of the problem: everyone is too cheerful (over-playing the said 50s cliché), especially the main protagonist. There's more infantile mugging than actual acting.
Like every one-joke bomb, this short film goes nowhere with its skimpy plot. You might be forgiven for assuming that a running time of a measly 5 minutes might comfortably accommodate that one joke without stretching the viewer's patience. Well, think again: a) the gag wasn't funny the first time, and b) even those 5 minutes seemed to stretch into a half-hour - that's how uninteresting WTDWYDH is.
Anyway, the lame title itself is a dead giveaway as to the quality of this near-Missgeburt. A word of advice to the two writer/directors: NEVER use a title that is blatant in its intention to sell the movie as funny, supposedly advertising the movie's "ha-ha hilarity". That's what Germans do, and we all know how terrific their comedies are... The only worse title would have been "What To Do With Your Dead Hooker And The Wonderful Zany Antics That Result Out Of This Funny Funny Affair".
The premise itself had potential, but not everything that sounds funny on paper can be turned that easily into good material. For that you need talent...
