I was Tempted to put this in Netherworld!


But its too scientific to be placed there!

Olive oil could be better than Viagra, scientists suggest

My opinion? Sure it is, depending on how you use it?

Were you compelled, old slippy one?

It seemed to be positively brimming with science!

The science showing the slippery staple of ancient Greece, and of many greasy frisky folks - that if you gulp it, you raise your "t" like Mr T!

The story leads me to consider not just adding that to my diet, but to even consider regular reviews of old Popeye cartoons!

For science!

It was a shame that Miss Oyle was the principle female in the ancient toons.

A very different time, with artists crafting the characters here in the USA, not far off Cathay.

Levels of meaning were layered in many comics for years. Long before "Fractured Fairy Tales" that I remember enjoying in my:

"Sunday morning cartoon ritual TV and Sunday pull-out comics section" viewing as a kid.

There were Pops, Olive, and their thuggish "beit noir" - Bluto. All changed a lot over the decades between their birth and my seeing them.

All were originally acceptably recognizable caricatures of actual, real world exemplars.

Yes, as in caricatures common in many comics, exaggerated elements were played up. Some much more, over time. As in "Super fore-arms powered by spinach."

The original Sailor was thin and stringy, but not skeletally rail thin. That body type is not at all uncommon in the military.

Rarely, then or now does would the low ranking, poorly speaking, rough acting Sailor find a classic beauty - oh, fo sho it does happen, but more often she is, uh, less "classically beautiful."

Especially as he gets older and is still low ranking, and he has much less need to "show off" and doesnt want to even try to "compete for the most beautiful" woman he might get.

He would "settle."

And much more commonly back then, a Sailor ashore would brawl. He never new if any given night it might be a fight with some bigger dude.

You can have the smaller guy win sometimes, and not just as a rare curiosity.

Thus the old motto "The size of the fight in the dog, not the size of the dog in the fight."

The original caricatures were "true."

Popeye! Part of our lost past, as lost to many as old Sumeria was to the later Babylonians.

We can pull it up online and show it to younger relatives - but it might as well be hieroglyphs that most of them are dutifully looking at.
