Tokyo Pop-eye: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Blow me down! On second thought, let me rephrase that.

First a Preston Blair piggy sex toy, and now this: A “Popeye” porn shop spotted in the main gay district of Tokyo. This is obviously not an officially licensed use of the character. Do you think someone over there is still sore over World War II Popeye cartoons like this one?
