Sixty seconds with Popeye
Interviewer: So Popeye, when did you first become addicted to spinach?
Popeye: When I first realised it provided steroid enhancing muscle growth.
Interviewer: Is this something particular to you? Because I eat a lot of spinach and nothing happens.
Popeye: Maybe my body has a particular susceptibility to spinach enhancement. But I still think it can help normal people.
Interviewer: Do you think your tendency to end up in tricky situations that require a feat of superhuman strength propagated your addiction?
Popeye: Without a doubt.
Interviewer: You speak very well. Yet in the cartoons you sound Polish. What’s up with all the consonants?
Popeye: That’s what happens when you have a pipe stuck in your mouth permanently.
Interviewer: I see. You certainly have a unique look. Why are your biceps located below your elbow?
Popeye: Years of hard manual labour gives you very strong wrists.
Interviewer: Have you ever heard of a can opener?
Popeye: No. What’s that?
Interviewer: It’s a device for opening cans.
Popeye: I’m too tough to carry a can opener.
Interviewer: Are your spinach cans disposed of in an environmentally sustainable manner?
Interviewer: Are you sure? Because you always seem to chuck them over your shoulder without looking.
Popeye: There’s a recycle bin behind me. You just can’t see it.
