Popeye the Sailor Dies at 77

Popeye, the well-known sailor, has died of E. coli poisoning at the age of 77, it was reported Sunday.

Born January 17, 1929, Popeye made his living repeatedly rescuing his girlfriend Olive Oyl from Bluto. In recent years Popeye had retired to an assisted-living community near Temecula, California.

Popeye fell ill last week after eating fresh bagged spinach. He is survived by Oyl and their son Swee'Pea.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Popeye's tombstone will read, "He hemorrhaged at the finich, 'cause he ate he spinach."
