  • Plot: Musty springs up through the ground into the town of "While-U-Wait" and soon finds the village is aptly named. He first visits a restaurant where meals are served "while-u-wait: and one doesn't have to wait long either. A chicken dinner is shot into our hero's anatomy by means of a giant hypodermic and "a side of peas" is administered with a gun. At a cleaning establishment Musty is run through a cleaning and pressing machine, clothes and all, and although the process almost kills him, his clothes are pressed all right, all right. Even wives are provided in short order in the town of "While-U-Wait." Quality is sacrificed to speed, and Musty finds he has picked a lemon in the garden of love. Consequently, he gives his bride the slip, after they had a wedding photograph taken, which is spoiled by the too-vigorous explosion of the flashlight powder. Musty is not satisfied merely to run away from his unpulchritudinous better half. His soul craves divorce. He sees a sign offering to furnish correspondents "While-u-wait," and picks out the prettiest one. He then hires Hemlock Jones and his dictagraph to get evidence against himself. This accomplished, he hires a "while-u-wait" lawyer and gets a "while-u-wait" separation. He then waves good-bye to the fair correspondent and blithely backs out of town. Upon reaching the city limits the earth suddenly swallows him, and Musty leaves the town of "While-U-Wait: as unceremoniously as he came.
