Artist Lee Ramao’s take on the iconic sailor featuring a more chiseled physique and some clever tattoos like a chest piece that reads I Yam What I Yam, a sailor’s knot on his hand, spinach leaves, an homage to Olive Oil, and, my personal favorite, an Anchor with the date 1.17.29 which marks when Popeye made his world debut in the King Features comic strip Thimble Theatre.

  1. yup… that is exactly how i remember star wars.

  2. popeye would fit good to the – x-men – ,look at this mutant under arms,killerpunch:)

  3. I’m glad Austin didn’t torch his apartment with the proton pack. The 5.0 must have new safety features.
    The Gordon/Chell vid was beyond awesome.
    And the feeling on Tony Stark’s face! lol

  4. Man, the Star Wars video made me laugh so much! In some weird way I find it so cute! :’)

  5. Sorry but I found that Star Wars vid even more racist than The Phantom Menace !

    • I didn’t find it particularly funny or good, but why did you find it racist?

      • Maybe he has a low opinion of people like her.

        • @ I liked QoS too , what are you talking about I have the complete opposite opinion she has better English than I will ever have Japanese this is my point she is very intelligent being made out to be a divvy !

      • I just don’t like seeing someone being asked to struggle using a second language for our comedic entertainment maybe racist was the wrong word to use but I just found it distasteful

        • What if it was her choice.

        • Quit looking for things to be mad at and enjoy a little humor.

          • You found this Funny ? Nuff said !

        • QoS…

          Fair enough.

    • This video, I mean…not TPM…

  6. i want that ironman figure ! :D

  7. Explaining a story (movie or whatever) in a foreign language is excellent practice. I had to describe the Amber Spyglass in Spanish today and I did not do that well. I find her inspirational.

  8. Is the Michael Shanks here the actor? (ie from Stargate SG-1) or another person with a coincidentally identical name?

  9. I want that Popeye in his own movie (Tin Tin-esk)
