Boys Will Be Boys

In the first line you see the boys arrive to service late. They are fooling around; one boy is pushing his friend into the girl in front of him while his friends laugh. In the second line, while the congregation is praying, the boys are sleeping in the back pew. The third lines shows the boys being the first ones out of the church The mothers are warning them to stay out of trouble but... While everyone is at the picnic, the boys are hiding behind an oak tree smoking things they shouldn't and shooting craps. As usual, the mothers catch them. The boys are grabbed by their shirt with fingers wagging in their face, smacked on the head, beaten with a cane and dragged off by their ear.
