ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

i actually find him MORE appealing this way.
Those pants are pure awesome. I google popeye pants and only underwear and pajamas adorned with popeye appear. I guess I’ll have to make them myself
hmmm upon further google it appears that only women wear old sailor pants. Usually sheer, some loose some tight, some denim. Oh wait, dudes have them in leather with a specific purpose in mind. I think in the right denim these would flatter a dude
hey those are real ones Now I only have to attain the form
Go to a gay clothing store. I have a pair in velvet.
Why would gay men wear them? It takes 15 minutes to get out of them.
They fasten with snaps now.
I shudder to think of the realistic Bluto.
I do wish he had hair, but otherwise this is awesome.
I like the green light. A hint of spinach.
He really dresses with spinache!
That is just astounding.
It makes it seem as if he almost did exist – some freak of nature from the 19th century. Hidden away from most of the civilized world, traveling the globe on anonymous schooners. Known mostly to other sea-farers.
I am going to, ahem, leave this here, and then just quietly show myself out…
Didn’t I just see this version of Popeye sailing a ship?
I Did! I Did see that Popeye cat sailing a boat, plus a couple more great images:
Dude should try western grip once in a while.
he probably knows Armstrong’s source..
All great except for the ’90s star tattoo. It looks late and landlubberly.
You mean the Nautical star? I honestly thought that was sorta a nice touch, honestly, given that symbol’s roots.
Oh, so THAT’s what Olive Oil was talking about!
What on Earth would I do with a print of that? Scare the dogs?
hey, c’mon now, that print will look great next to the WWE posters in my trailer…
I’m liking it, but I really think they needed to slim down the wrists a tad and give him some bigger traps. Not like WWE size ones, but something big enough to be able to lift a hand that is literally the size of your own head.
As /fit/ likes to say, I’m jelly.
He is what he is, and tatts beyond the basic navy anchor is more than he needs to be.
Oh gosh, Ehrmantraut is back.
When I was a kid and there were used record stores I saw in one a poster of Popeye screwing Olive Oyle, apparently taking advantage of the design of those pants. When I was too young to really appreciate what I was seeing, but it was still epic.
Finger tats read: HOLD FAST. That just really pushed it into amazeballs territory.
