About Mr. HamblinEdit

Fred and Lamont, who were behind in all of their bills, due to Fred's negligent approach to it "Put it back in the mailbox!" find themselves trapped in their home in a standoff with a process server and with Hamblin, a collection agency repossessor, a one with the cops in tow, who are ready to repossess their unpaid furniture. Fred's acting ability, which culminates in him faking a bad heart, and faking as if he were pushed rudely by the repossesor when they head upstairs to take the bedroom furniture, coupled with a convenient legal loophole, comes to the rescue, saving their necks, and it nets them $200.00 as Hamblin said "To help pay for you little doctor bills!"
