THE MAN WHO COULDN’T KEEP A JOB – by Timmins

1.

WELL, I START MY NEW JOB TOMORROW. LET’S HOPE THIS ONE LASTS! I’M TIRED OF HAVING TO CHANGE SO OFTEN. NEVER GETS YOU ANYWHERE

OH, I WANT YOU TO MAKE GOOD! BUT DO BE CAREFUL ABOUT LITTLE THINGS

2.

LITTLE THINGS? WHAT WAS ELSIE HINTING AT? I HAVEN’T THE LEAST IDEA

3. A MONTH LATER he found out

YOU SAY HE’S BRIGHT AND HARDWORKING, BUT CARELESS ABOUT “B.O.” SURELY THAT’S A LITTLE THING

A MIGHTY IMPORTANT “LITTLE THING” IF YOU HAVE TO WORK NEAR HIM! ALL THE OTHERS ARE COMPLAINING. HE’LL HAVE TO REFORM-OR GO!

4.

WHATA FOOL I’VE BEEN! I’VE SEEN DOZENS OF “B.O.” ADS, BUT NEVER DREAMED I COULD BE GUILTY. WELL, I KNOW NOW — AND I KNOW WHAT TO DO. I’LL GET SOME LIFEBUOY TODAY

5. NO “B.O.” NOW to spoil his chances

I’VE BEEN IN MY JOB SIX MONTHS, ELSIE. HAD A NICE PROMOTION, TOO. ISN’T IT TIME TO TALK ABOUT A WEDDING?

WHENEVER YOU SAY, DEAR

Don’t let “B.O.” (body odor) bar your way

PORES are constantly giving off odor-causing waste. Play safe—bathe regularly with Lifebuoy. Its creamy, abundant lather purifies pores and removes all trace of “B.O.” (body odor). Freshens dull complexions. Gets germs off hands — helps safeguard health. Its pleasant, hygienic scent vanishes as you rinse.

TRY LIFEBUOY FREE

If you don’t use Lifebuoy and want to try it, send a clipping of this offer with your name and address to Lever Brothers Co., Dept. 4610, Cambridge, Mass. A full-sized cake will be sent you without cost. (This offer good in U.S-and Canada only.)

    And doesn’t she seem thrilled by the prospect? “Yeah, sure, whenever.”

    @ Charlene – “Whatever gets you down wind stinky.”

    Now the company is known as Unilever.

    I wonder if they still market lifebuoy.
