This stainless steel “Popeye” statue is expected to draw around $25 million when Sotheby’s auctions it on May 14. It is a six-and-a-half-foot-tall stainless-steel sculpture of Popeye made between 2009 and 2011 by the incomparable artist Jeff Koons.
Fans can never tell where Popeye, Olive or anyone else from the “Popeye” comic strip will appear next!

It’s National Spinach Day in the U.S., but this leafy green vegetable is enjoyed around the world 365 days a year, with practically every international cuisine including it in their recipe repertoire.
Spinach is loaded with good-for-you nutrients like potassium, iron, folate and vitamins A and K. It even provides vitamin E, calcium and zinc. When combined with high vitamin C foods, like tomatoes or lemon juice, spinach provides a powerful infusion of iron too.
It’s no wonder why spinach is Popeye’s favorite go-to, pick-me-up vegetable for energy!
