The Washington Post, December 6, 1927. The cartoon is a reprint, originally published some time in the 1890s during the Slasher crisis. Criminologists and hotshot detectives came from all over the country to try to catch the guy, who turned out to be an illiterate farm hand. Alienists pronounced him way insane and he spent the rest of his days in an asylum. Dunno what molasses had to do with anything. I like the sound of the Jolly Fat Men’s Club though.
