Open your mouth and close your eyes. Here comes a nice surprise. Skitery dum and scitery doo, I've got some spinach for all of you. 
Here you are Pipeye, Peepeye, Pupeye, and Poopeye. 
But we hate spinach. 
Huh? You got to eat your spinach if you wants to be strong like your great great great great great uncle Hercules. 
Hercules? Our uncle? He was strong. He was great. Did he get that way from the spinach he ate? 
Certainly. It's a hysterical fact. I'll tell you the story how it happened. 
 
Once upon a time a long time ago in a distant land far away there lived the strongest man in the world, and the people's best friend - Hercules. One day while Hercules was riding along in his chariot, he saw a baby bird fall off a tree. Jumping out of his tree, he ran to the bird to see what happened. Now, so's he can help the birdie, he has to get strength so he takes a piece of strong garlic and sniffs it. And with his strength, he pushed and pushed and pushed the big tree into the earth. 
 
Hercules was awful strong, but very tender. 
It was garlic that made him strong. Where does the spinach part belong? 
Don't come to inclusions. You ain't heard everything yet. Like I was saying, one day, a big bull-headed bully come to Hercules's neighborhood. 
Ha ha ha! So Hercules think it him strongest man on Earth. In my hand, he be like dirt. Hoy! 
Scram it! Beat it! 
Flee-eth for thy life. Hercules! I challenge thee. 
I accept-eth. I accept-eth. I accept-eth. I accept-eth. 
 
So Hercules accepted the big bully's challenge to feats of strength. 
Top this. 
Huh? 
Gee, Uncle Popeye. It still isn't spinach what made him win. 
Don't interrupt me. I ain't finished yet. 
 
So, mounting two mountains, the men challenged each other in a tug-of-war. 
 
Get ready. Set. Go! 
Oh ho ho ho ho! 
The garlic! I'll fix that for good. 
I'll fix-eth thee, and how. Mine strength... gone. 
One good blow and thou are through. 
Spinach. A strange weed this be. What's restore-eth my vitality. 
How come you got strength without garlic? 
Better than garlic is spinach! 
 
So Hercules knocked the big bully for a row of trash cans. 
So kiddies, that's why you have to eats your spinach. Huh? 
Ice cream is hot stuff. 
You said it, sport.
