EDMONTON, AB – Hoping to emulate the healthy diet of the classic cartoon character, local man, Howard Morovitz, 38, attempted to order spinach at restaurant chain Popeyes, and was appalled that the menu offerings were mainly several variations of fried chicken.
“How can you name your restaurant after famed animated spinach eater, Popeye the sailor man, and not have any spinach on the menu?” said Morovitz.
“I’m on a cleanse right now and I can only eat greens. I’m starving and all that’s around was this Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Are you trying to tell me that there is no spinach in Louisiana? If so, why don’t they get some? What’s wrong with them?!”
A spokeswoman for the restaurant explained that the restaurant chain has no affiliation with the cartoon character, but noted this incident was – to her knowledge – the first time anyone has ever come into a Popeyes restaurant and asked for a vegetable of any kind, adding, “[Popeyes] coleslaw is typically just decoration.”
At press time, the Vatican’s multimillion dollar endowment fund has purchased shares in a restaurant chain they believe to be called “Pope Yes.”
