Champ rowing

Popeye the Sailor Man goes rowing in this great short cartoon from 1933. Well, he doesn't row - he stands in the bow looking manly and repelling thunderbolts. Wimpy sits in the back eating. Olive Oyl does the actual rowing. A very interesting and remarkable style she has, too. And look out for the scene at the end where she duffs up a marauding horde of Red Indians while screaming for help. Whadda goyl!
Thanks to Tillerman for the headsup.

Don't thank me. Thank Mitt Romney who has been channelling Popeye this week.
