After all, dear children, ' He Shall Always Be The Strong Arm Within Your Own Family ' - A Noble and Harmonious Stone - who shall provide A Victory For All Of The People!  


The Most Fragrant Of All Flowers ( or, The Exceptionally Beloved One ) is ' The Archer Of The Western Meadow ' - who shall inflict [ both ]: Suffering and Pain - since, ' The Most Heavily Muscled Leg Of The Swine Shall Be Reduced To A Small Portion Of Gravy '. You see, dear children, the one with: The Will, Desire, and Helmet Of Protection - is The True Friend Of The Boar... and, the inevitable result shall be ' A Hardened Colony Of Thriving Individuals Who Shall Firmly Adhere Themselves To The One With: The Will, Desire, And Helmet Of Protection ' - since, after all, The Bright And Famous One is [ indeed ] The Very Strong Fortress!

The Army Commander shall be compensated for these services - from The Storage House Of The Swine - since, this beloved one is: The Son Of God's Own Brightness and The Son Who Serves As His Feet.

A Historical Footnote, From Wikipedia:
Differences in Popeye's story and characterization show up depending upon which medium he is presented in. While Swee'Pea is definitively the ward of Popeye in the comic strips, he is often depicted as belonging to Olive Oyl in cartoons. The cartoons also occasionally feature family members of Popeye that have never appeared in the strip, notably his look-alike nephews Peepeye, Pupeye, Pipeye and Poopeye.
Even though there is no absolute sense of continuity in the stories, certain plot and presentation elements remain mostly constant, including purposeful contradictions in Popeye's capabilities. Though at times he seems bereft of manners or uneducated, Popeye is often depicted as capable of coming up with solutions to problems that (to the police, or, most importantly, the scientific community) seem insurmountable. Popeye has, alternatively, displayed Sherlock Holmes-like investigative prowess (determining for instance that his beloved Olive was abducted by estimating the depth of the villains' footprints in the sand), scientific ingenuity (as his construction, within a few hours, of a "spinach-drive" spaceship), or oversimplified (yet successful) diplomatic argumentation (by presenting to diplomatic conferences his own existence --- and superhuman strength --- as the only true guarantee of world peace). Popeye's pipe also proves to be highly versatile. Among other things, it has served as a cutting torch, jet engine, propeller, periscope, and, of course, a whistle with which he produces his trademark toot. Popeye also on occasion eats spinach through his pipe, sometimes sucking in the can itself along with the contents. He seldom appears to use it to smoke tobacco.
Popeye's vastly versatile exploits are deemed even more amusing by a few standard plot elements. One is the love triangle between Popeye, Olive and Bluto, and the latter's endless machinations to claim Olive at Popeye's expense. Another is his (near-saintly) perseverance to overcome any obstacle to please Olive – who, quite often, renounces Popeye for Bluto's dime-store advances. She is the only character Popeye will permit to give him a thumping. Finally, in terms of the endless array of villain plots, Popeye mostly comes to the truth by "accidentally" sneaking up on the villains, the moment they are bragging about their schemes' ingenuity, thus revealing everything to an enraged Popeye, who uses his "fisks" in the name of justice.
