Spinach in a trash can

In a surprising revelation to Piers Morgan on his Detroit radio station, Popeye told Piers that he had used illegal spinach in his cartoon shows.

Recent research by the Department of Vegetables has shown that a can of spinach has the nutritional value of a quart of water.

Popeye said that it was necessary at the time to defeat Bluto, who was an evil and dangerous villain. "The kids would not have tolerated the anti American values of Bluto, so I did not feel guilty about using the steroid enhanced spinach".

A spokesperson for the Motion Picture Industry said this morning that they had no plans to renew Popeye's contract when it expired in August 2014.

"We cannot believe that he failed a steroid check last month and wolfed down the testosterone laden vegetable in children's cartoons, pretending it was just normal revolting boiled spinach. You sure live and learn."
