Just exactly what is virgin olive oil?
———- from Bill K. of San Bruno, CA
You are, of course, referring to Popeye’s female friend, Olive Oil. Little is known about the relationship that Popeye and Olive shared through 40 years of rescuing her from the chauvinistic, harassing grasps of Bluto, or Brutus as he was sometimes called. Science does not know what level of intimacy these two cartoon characters enjoyed and, frankly, this Scientist doesn’t care. The fact that you should be so interested in the private affairs of a pair of two dimensional drawings indicates you have taken a mighty small bite of what the world has to offer and have chewed that bit far too well. I recommend therapy and the sooner, the better.
