In issue 9 of the Baba Indaba children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the old English story about a young man who sets off to find fame and fortune. Alsong the way he meets three groups of silly people, each group sillier than the last.
A young physician enters the U.S. Army Medical Corps for his draft-deferred obligatory service in a dilapidated dispensary building for troops going overseas.
The assigned corpsman and an army carpenter trying to improve the building incur multiple comical mishaps and have additional antics involving a local strip joint. The addition of a female medical officer complicates the situation.
