I don’t remember where I saw this, but in a recent woodworking article someone pointed to Laurel and Hardy’s Busy Bodies episode. The comment had something to do with removing glue…

There are embeddable versions of the video clip, as well as a colorized version, but this B&W copy had the best viewing quality. You’ll have to follow the link to YouTube to watch it.
