| Corn on the Cop was a funny Shemp Howard/Harry Gribbon short
Shemp Howard and Harry Gribbon are tramps who try to make money by selling "salve" that cures corns. Shemp gets customers by using a mallet to hit feet! But then a cop recognizes them from earlier and the jig's up! This was quite a funny short with Howard and Gribbon quite a team here. So on that note, I recommend Corn on the Cop.
