To think, two famous seafarers in the same port!

I most definitely LOL'd.

I caught it too.  Well, Scott Bieser was involved in both it and Roswell, TX,http://www.bigheadpress.com/roswell?page=119.  Was it your idea, Mr. Bieser?

The Carthaginian Popeye was hilarious.  I don't think he would eat spinach, though, because I don't think it spread to North Africa until the Muslim conquest.  Must have eaten some other ancient green.

16th century.  About the same time (but from a different direction) that tomatoes, potatoes, turkeys, maize and chiles reached Europe.  (Chocolate was later that century and didn't get mixed with sugar for at least 150 years after that)).

I'll admit I prefer the original Aztec recipe for Xioclotl.  Chocalate and chile extract mixed with water and boiled. (i use unsweetened chocolate and chipotle powder usually) I lost my sweet tooth over thirty years ago.

4/13, first panel: is that El Neil passing in the background?

KB: no, that's not Neil. Just some guy with a small beard.

I'm an old Popeye fan from way back, and try to put a cameo of him in all my books as appropriate.

Technically, that would be moly he's eating.  Of the non-holy sort.
