More About Cousin EmmaEdit

Emma lows in from the Windy City and promises to make the living easier for Lamont and Cousin Grady, but Lamont has his doubts, especially after being bumped from his bedroom and having to share a bed with Grady! After discovering her free-loading, gold-bricking ways (staying in bed all day, promising to cook big dinners and not doing anything but lying around) Lamont, along with Grady, cook up schemes to get rid of the unwanted (and extremely lazy) Emma.

A conconted, made up story about contracting the contagious "Junkman's Itch", complete with "The Hong Kong Hives" which includes scratching all over, and the need to take a hot bath with Brillo pads, is enough to scare the lazy Emma away, not before she takes off with the lunch Grady prepared for he and Lamont!
