Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Popeye Is The World's Greatest Player?!?

Sigh, Popeye and Olive Oyl are fighting again...

And the subject of this fight?

Hold the heck on for one flipping minute!!!

Popeye and Olive have been engaged for TWENTY YEARS???

Leave aside that this tells us that, in 1957, Popeye wasn't messing around with a "sliding timeline." And just how old was Swee'Pea, anyway?!?!

No, let's focus on the fact that Popeye has managed to stay engaged to the same woman for 20 years without having to step up to the next level and actually marry her.

Olive--what the hell? Why are you still hanging with this obvious commitment-phobe?

And Popeye--what kind of player are you? Good garsh!! 20 years? You ought to write a book or something!!

From Popeye #40 (1957) as reprinted in Classic Popeye #40 (2015)
