Friday Night Fights--Greater Love Hath No Sailor Man Style!!

A little bit of change of pace for Friday Night Fights this week, peanut gallery, as we (eventually) have a One-Punch Special.

Popeye is broke, and signs up for a boxing match to make some cash. Olive is not pleased about this:

Well, Popeye is in a dilemma now, eh?

But with help from Wimpy, he devises a plan--he won't throw a single punch in the fight!! He'll just stand there and take the abuse from his opponent!

And come fight night:

It's not looking any prettier live:

So all is good, right? Not so fast...


Oh, Olive...

Spacebooger is unclear about the Olive Oyl's mental processes...

One punch is all it takes in Popeye #10 (1950), as reprinted in Classic Popeye #10 (2013), by Bud Sagendorf.

Now is the time for you to go and vote. Not for my way this wins this week. I just thought it was kinda cool. But please, go and vote for someone else's fight tonight!!
