Well blow me down!

This “Popeye Mariuana Pot Guy Weed Hip Hop Hustler” t-shirt is currently for sale on ebay. I doubt it was officially licensed by King Features.

    Are you sure that’s Popeye?
    It’s more likely one of his rambunctious nephews gone bad. Apparently, Popeye was out to sea too much to be much of a father figure.

    That sound read “Well blow me down,nephew.”

    Welcome to California. I see these type of shirts where I live all the time. I’ve shirts as elaborate as Spongebob with gold teeth, Homer Simpson pimped out, and the Pillsbury Doughboy wearing chains and holding a gun.

    I’m not joking either, getting classic characters and gangsterfying them has increased in popularity.

    heh
    reminds of once, long ago at a theme park, seeing a man with a similar shirt.
    It depicted Mickey Mouse with one hand down his pants and the other hand flipping the bird with the caption “Fuck Tourists”

    He’s not kidding. You can find them at any corner-store, 99 cent store, or smoke shop, save ones run by Asians, usually.

    I believe you, I just wish I was in California right now! Reminds me TOO much of the shirts we used to get away with wearing back in high school in the 90′s (I went to a pretty decent school that hadn’t thought about a dress code yet). I wouldn’t mind buying this shirt personally, it’s 4XL after all (can’t find those much in Ohio).

    You can also see licensed shirts with Popeye dressed as a hip-hop rapper, gambling or with gold chains around his neck. Maybe it’s me but I don’t think this is what EC Segar ever wanted for his character.
    I see one shirt with a Fleischer pose with the word PIMP below him.
    I Yam What I Yam?????…hardly!

    A while back, a local columnist wrote of his theory (urban legend?) that in Popeye-ese, “spinach” is code for “marijuana” and cited a ’50s Popeye cartoon as “evidence.” I guess this photo of Popeye is the ultimate conclusion.

    Wow that is even crappier then the T-shirts I saw on the New Jersey Board Walk.

  • Fred Sparrman

    I can’t believe they gave Popeye teeth! That really puts him off-model.

    terrible taste

    Jerry, for the love of all that is decent, please stop this thread. You’re all giving Audrey Geisel ideas for the next wave of Dr. Seuss merchandise.

    “save ones run by asians” ahahha!!
    The asian run corner shops around here boast about them “look at tweety smoking a joint!” These shirt have been prevalent since like.. the 60s. My parents have some old shirts in a box with tie-dye bootleg sylvester shirt with he and tweety stoned.
