Spinach Anchor MOM Compass 1 Answer Voted Oldest Recent Random Best Answer Goto 2021-07-17T20:03:50+00:00Added an answer on July 17, 2021 at 8:03 pm The correct answer is: Anchor Before his namesake was used to sell fried chicken, Popeye was the first tattooed comic book character. Appearing in 1929, we all know his main squeeze was Olive Oyl and he spent his spare time getting beat up by Bluto until he popped open a can of spinach. Popeye had an anchor tattooed on each forearm, an image that became synonymous with seamen everywhere. Those forearm anchor tattoos were pretty iconic, and in later cartoons would become animated and change color and shape to reflect Popeye’s spinach-derived strength. 3 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
