Popeye stricken by tainted spinach

By John Breneman

Cartoon legend Popeye the Sailor Man is in stable condition at Bethesda Naval Hospital, where he is recovering after sucking several cans of bad spinach through his corncob pipe.

The 77-year-old Popeye, a colorful spokesman and lobbyist for the spinach industry, defied FDA warnings that more than 130 people have fallen ill from a deadly outbreak E. coli attributed to the leafy, iron-rich vegetable.

The muttering, one-eyed muscleman, who credits a spinach-based diet with giving him steroid-style forearms and super-human strength, claimed the spinach scare may be the work of his arch-nemesis Bluto, perhaps as part of yet another scheme to steal Popeye's girl, the floss-thin anoerxia poster girl, Olive Oyl.
