* Why couldn't Popeye just eat the spinach outright instead of waiting for "the right moment" and therefore avoiding those times when Bluto becomes GenreSavvy?

* What is Popeye's accent and speech pattern supposed to be? Especially his grammar in the comics.

**My best guess is brain-damaged Irish. Considering Popeye's a fighter at heart, he's probably had his noggin rattled a time or two.

** Bluto is seen to despise spinach, so much so that he won't even eat it if it means beating Popeye. He may even consider eating it to even the odds the same as admitting defeat.

** Watsonian interpretation: AllGirlsWantBadBoys, or she does it to [[SecretTestOfCharacter test Popeye's devotion to her]]. The actual reason is that, like how Miyamoto said to compare Mario to Popeye, the Popeye crew is like a theatre troupe; they play their roles within different, [[NegativeContinuity unconnected]] stories, so one day Popeye and Bluto are next door neighbors, the next they are rival pirate captains. They all perform for us to love them.

* Also, why the hell can't Bluto just go buy his own can of spinach? Seriously, does Popeye have a part-time job farming spinach or something?

* Many times Bluto kidnap, assault, and possibly try to rape Olive, and Popeye always arrive to save the day. Why does she become interested in Bluto in later episodes?

* Why does Bluto keep on fighting Popeye? Shouldn't he have gotten the memo the third or so time he popped a can of spinach?
