They'll Do It Every Time

Jimmy Hatlo was the creator of the newspaper comic "They'll Do it Every Time." This comic originated in 1929 and was picked up for national distribution by King Features Syndicate in 1936. This comic is currently drawn by Al Scaduto and is distributed to more than 100 newspapers. Current examples of this and other King Features comics can be viewed at the King Features DailyINK website.

Shown here is a linen postcard from the 1940s. The comic has been described as a humorous look at human hypocrisy. This particular example is about overweight women who buy garments that are too tight because they are planning to go on a diet. The salesladies, of course, have heard that theme many times before!
