Lazy Jack is so lazy and impractical that he can barely do anything at all. His mother gets so tired of his uselessness that she threatens to banish him from the home if he cannot go out and find work. So Jack wanders out into the world, seeking work on different farms. What ensues is a hilarious series of botched attempts as he begins to take his Mother's guidance word for word, remaining incapable of seeing that every new situation requires something unique. His impracticality results in silly scenarios such as an attempt to carry a Donkey home in a basket! But Lazy Jack's ridiculousness pays off when he happens to lighten the Spirits of someone who has forgotten how to laugh.
