This is a theory of Popeye the Sailor Man, you know that 30's cartoon?
"I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.
I'm strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach.
I'm Popeye the Sailor Man."
Popeye was an Arabic immigrant who moved to Houston, Texas in 1887 with his family. When he was 5 years old, he was dragged into the wrong group of kids, and he started becoming addicted to crack. He would steal his one of his father's cigarettes and smoke away. That's why Popeye is normally depicted with a cigar in his mouth.
Olive Oil's story:
Olive Oil was Popeye's mother, but in the show, Olive Oil was Popeye's girlfriend/wife. That's because when he was in middle school, he started having an affair with his mother.
Popeye's addiction to crack:
One day, right after he smoked crack, he had spinach for dinner, and 20 minutes later, he had big lumps on his triceps and biceps (depicted as muscles in the cartoon). They swelled real bad, but after he was diagnosed, he realized something, they were arm cancer caused by heavy use of CRACK!
So, Popeye had arm cancer after he ate spinach.
A CARTOON IS BORN:
Popeye was depressed from his crack addiction, so he moved away from his family to Chester, Illinois, where he met E. C. Segar (the creator of Popeye) who just became a cartoonist in 1919, so he wanted to make a new comic strip. Segar started asking Popeye questions about his life so he would have ideas of a cartoon.
