Stanley (Stan Laurel) and Ollie (Oliver Hardy) want to attend the yearly convention of the Sons of the Desert, a fraternal group to which they belong. When Ollie's wife, Lollie (Mae Busch), objects, he feigns sickness, and Stanley gets a doctor to prescribe a fake trip to Hawaii. After Stanley and Ollie revel with the Sons of the Desert, they return home to find out the ship they were supposedly on has sunk in a typhoon, and they're forced to cover their tracks.
