Shopkeeper Bosko takes
care of business.
of the aptly named "Bosko's Store", is whistling and washing
his windows when he gets a phone call. The customer on the phone asks
for bologna, so Bosko grabs one, hold it up to the phone, and asks
"How's that?". "Okay!" the customer replies, after
which Bosko goes over to his meat slicer (an electric fan) and starts
cutting. As he's slicing, a dachshund walks into the store (his rear lagging
behind his front) and proceeds to swallow all the slices that Bosko has
cut, turning him into an accordion! Bosko spots the dog, who then runs
off into the fan and gets sliced like the bologna, only he's somehow reassembled
at the other end. The dog runs out of the store as Bosko laughs heartily.
Bosko then begins dusting, dancing all the while, and somehow causes the
eggs to chirp and the bologna to bark as passes the duster over them.
He dusts the bottom of a woman on a life-size stand-up, causing her to
come to life and whack him with a bat. Bosko is then interrupted by a
crank call, which happens to come from a tiny mouse who razzes him through
the phone. Next, Bosko grabs a broom and starts sweeping the front porch,
dancing with the broom in the process. An arm comes out of the broom momentarily
to move Bosko's hand off of it's backside. Honey and Wilber come strolling
along, and Bosko greets them with "Hello Honey!". Wilber imitates
him, adding "Nertz!". "Let's make whoopee Bosko! Got a
nickel?" says Honey, so Bosko drops a nickel into the hungry slot
of a player piano and they begin dancing. Wilber goes off and starts eating
the bananas hanging outside the store. When Bosko confronts the kitten,
Wilber shoots a banana into Bosko's face. Bosko stumbles back into the
store and falls into a hanging basket, which Wilber sends flying across
the store. It hits a wall and Bosko falls out, but then he knocks into
a cash register and stumbles into a barrel of molasses, which pours all
over him. Bosko tries to get up, but the sticky molasses has him glued
to the floor. Wilber somehow manages to fall into the meat grinder, where
he's ground out as several little Wilbers who soon manage to reconstitute
themselves. Bosko takes his shoes off and runs after Wilber, who then
leaps onto a rolling ladder and starts dropping cans onto Bosko's head.
Then Wilber grabs a line of barbed wire and runs it under Bosko's crotch.
Bosko screams in unthinkable pain and grabs his smoking bottom as the

have you got any dried fish?"
