Abstract:

Gwendolyn's anemic father goes to the park to seek a wife as his obese sixteen year old daughter is quite unmanageable. He sees a lady and her escort, Hank, sitting on a bench, so he passes her a note containing belittling remarks about Hank to win her over. His plan fails but gets Hank in trouble with a prize fighter on a neighboring bench. In the meantime, Gwendolyn goes to the park in search of a mate. She sees Hank and falls in love. Hank tries in vain to shake her off. In the end no one gets what they want.
