Obscurity of the Day: Show Me
C.A. Voight created a number of running series, most of them appearing more or less weekly, for the short-lived Boston Traveler syndicate. He was definitely one of the workhorses in their small stable, producing a lot of material for them. Here is Show Me, which offers gags about hypocrites. I like in this example that the 'diets' get increasingly ludicrous as we go on -- a nice build-up.
Show Me ran from October 21 1908 to January 12 1910 in the Traveler and their very small list of client papers.
