Storyline

Bridget was making a cake and little Willie, after watching her for a while, decided to play a little joke on her. After covering her with a snowstorm of flour he nimbly got out of the kitchen with her in pursuit. In his flight he passed a store where some china eggs were displayed. He bought one, took it home and asked Bridget to fry it for him. Poor Bridget tried to break the egg and was amazed to find how hard the shell was. She hurried into another room to tell Willie's mother about it, and brought her back to see the egg. Meanwhile Willie had substituted a real egg for the china one. Bridget was determined to break the thick shell and took an ax to it. She broke it and then some. It splashed all over herself and her mistress. Willie, who had a grandstand seat behind the door, laughed so hard he drew their attention to him, and then he got his. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
