Picasso as Popeye (no foolin)

This is Picasso as Popeye. We all need a view of a more innocent time even if this mock Popeye is not a favorite of mine. In fact, I love this picture so much I think it’s the first time in my life I have actually even liked Picasso a little.


It comes to us all courtesy a site called   Retronaut.   He’s got every decade covered in fabulous black and white photographs, signs, posters.   I’ve only begun my delve, I recommend spending some time there, it’s terrific fun.

Retronaut’s trademarked  motto  is:                                                       The past is a foreign country. This is your passport.

Oh for the days of Popeye The nicotine-stained Sailor Man, beanpoled Olive Oyl devoid of implanted anything, nasty bully Blutto, needy Whimpy, mischevious Sweet Pea. A time when defense against the world was a good right hook, virtue and love on your side,  and a 16 oz. can of spinach.

I fights to the finich

cause I eats my spinach

I’m Popeye the Sailor–man. 

Toot toot.
