There isn't much that can be done with a plot as bad as this one. Burns is a Missouri mule breeder who is determined not to go bankrupt when the mule market collapses. He takes his prize mule to a Kansas livestock show to impress an English army representative. He and his wife then go to
England to show off their stock to government mule buyers, and before you know it, Burns and George are living high as part of Britain's upper crust.
