Spinach Doesn't Give Super Strength
I believed those cartoons when Popeye whooped Bluto.
If you're wondering if it was real, the answer is hell no.
When I watched those cartoons, I was dumb because I believed them fully.
I decided to eat a can of spinach and then face the neighborhood bully.
I believed the spinach would give me super strength, I had no doubt.
But that bully nearly broke my neck, he turned me inside out.
I was shocked and horrified when I didn't win.
I was humiliated, I'll never watch Popeye again.
Spinach is healthy, that is one hundred percent true.
But if you eat it and then face a bully, he will kill you.
