Storyline

They are rivals for the love of a girl of mere acquaintance. One was a poor poet, the other a haphazard nincompoop. The poet became peeved and nonchalantly chucked his rival into the park pond. The girl ran away and the rivals met again, but this time the wet one was determined to fight and Mr. Poet was forced to defend himself. He was being hard pressed when a little miss from nowhere stepped in and separated them and threw the wet one back into the pond. A park bird saw and decided that the poet had no right to so sweet a girl and so the poor poet fell out of the frying pan into the fire. They had a duel, which resulted in the most exciting and surprising manner imaginable. To get the full humor, this is impossible from mere words, so why continue?
