“I am what I am” -Popeye the Sailor Man
Great motto to live by.
“Popeye: [singing] I yam what I yam and I yam what I yam that I yam / And I got a lotta muscle and I only gots one eye / And I’ll never hurt nobodys and I’ll never tell a lie / Top to me bottom and me bottom to me top / That’s the way it is ’til the day that I drop, what am I? / I yam what I yam.”
Not only is Popeye my boyfriend (lol, I would get teased by anyone for having the name Olive) but this quick post was inspired not by Popeye the Sailor Man but, from a movie called Airborne(1993). Here is the memorable quote:
Mitchell Goosen: Popeye, now there was a great man. Do you know why?
Wiley: He never joined the Hairclub For Men?
Mitchell Goosen: Wrong. Because his motto was: I am what I am. Do you think Popeye ever worried about what he wore just so he could get Olive Oil in the sack? I should say not, Dude. And do you know why?
Wiley: He was gay?
Mitchell Goosen: Because he is what he is.
Not only is it my favorite scene from all of the movie but, Seth Green is funny! Love that man! So, I say goodbye for today and I leave you with the a video clip. Hope you like it too!
