Big Man Dan

Sheila calls on her brave husband Dan for help when she spots a cockroach in their bathroom. But when the roach flies, Dan loses all sense and imagines that the roach is a kung-fu master who he must fight with all his might to protect his defenceless wife. After observing Dan’s approach to tackling the roach problem, Sheila decides to handle the pest herself. In the end, Dan still takes all the credit.
