: : Does anyone who where the phrase damned if you do damned if you don't originated from? We are involved in a scavenger hunt and one of the clues is "It's a lot of words to say, damned if you do damned if you don't." Can you help.

I'm no experts on its origin. But there is an equivalent expression I've heard: "You can't win for losing."
