The Cats Did What-now?

Another reason to love Wikipedia: there I was, minding my own business, reading an article about Olive Oyl (whose name, I learned, is a pun on "olive oil"—it's true!), when I stumbled upon somebody's creepy foot-fetish interpolation:

Unlike most modern damsels in distress, Olive Oyl has short hair, is tall, skinny, with enormous feet that have been tickled on several occasions.  Once tied up on a ship and having her shoes taken off, milk was spread on her feet and licked of by cat's she was laughing very much.

OK, now I know way too much about Olive Oyl's feet.  What's more, that's a run-on sentence with a dangling modifier, a misspelling of off, and a greengrocers' apostrophe in cat's.  Oh, and [citation needed], I think.

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.

Er, wasn't that obvious *before* you read the article?

I think this article may assist.

As a boy, I found her somewhat whiny and repellent in the Fleischer cartoons, and later learned to appreciate her quirky ways in the Segal reprints, but I can't say she had any sort of attraction for me, unlike this chap:

He has issues that even God can't fix, I think, poisanally.

She had long hair, she just wore it up.

She was also a replacement for Popeye's first girlfriend - Betty Boop (I remember seeing that in a documentary when I was a teenager).

I remember the cat thing, but I believe you're right - a citation is needed. :-)

I'm a big fan of Olive Oyl.
