He’s Going to Pump Ham Up

Hey, is it me or is Popeye lookin’ at me like I’m a can of spinach?

Can someone please get Bluto on the horn?

Fluffy dumbbell, Kathryn W.

    Fluffy! Dumbbell!

  2. Be careful you don’t pull a hamstring…

  3. Swingebreech says:

    This is especially appropriate since “muscle” comes from “little mouse” 🙂

  4. SO sweet…

  5. Kirk Douglas is calling about a copyright infringement for that chin.

  6. tracylee says:

    Guns ‘n’ Ham-o, seriously?!

    tee hee hee luuuurve it!

  7. He stole that hair style from Eddie Munster

  8. Since Mr. Gigante’s first thought was “poor camera placement, subject out of focus”, he declares himself Totally Jaded and retires to his rooms where he shall sit quietly until such time as his priorities are again in order.

  9. p.s.
    Chicken feet.

  10. HAM HAM *flails* It’s been a rough week and I have definitely looked to CO to help make me smile; it has succeeded so far!

  11. Flutterby says:

    Cheeky little fella!

  12. Always thought Henry Rollins had a softer side… but that’s pretty damned soft!

  13. Ak-kugkugkugkugkug! *toot toot*

    I wonder how high he can make that ham fly when he flexes?

  14. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    Random but most-useful of ALL Popeye cartoon’s catchphrases:

    (STILL operates usefully, 70 yrs later):

    “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday, for a HAMburger, today!!!”

    (how ’bout THAT — it even has a Hamster reference in it!!!
    Does this mean that I get the job, Mr Selznick???)

  15. This is Ham-Meister and his purrsonal body-guard Bubba, who accompanies him everywhere; since HM is such an astute Wall-Street Tycoon, he must have protection from shysters, who stalk him everywhere in attempt to obtain some of his largesse; (be warned: this what happens when you haz lottsa munnies…..!) 😯

  16. tracylee says:

    p.s., that is no girly-man!

  17. Patito Gigante, maybe the ham’s out of focus because he’s buzzing from the sport drink he guzzled.

  18. Fluidstatic says:

    @cheesybird – there’s an image.

    *Ham crawls out of a can of Monster, soaking wet, licks itself dry – and then* WOWTHATWASAWESOMEOKHEYDADLETSWORKOUTI’LLSPOTYOU


  19. Like Pounce, I see him (the ham) being flex-bounced from biceps to biceps over the guy’s head to circus music: yaaaa da da da daaaa, ya da daaa da da daaa da da daaaaaaa..

  20. SEE! It’s not ALL cats and racks around here.

    @Mika: Love the Eddie Munster hairline! Would never have noticed it otherwise.

  21. HopeGrows247 says:

    @tink ROFLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. My Fujica STX-1 instruction manual says “choose fast shutter speed to reduce blur of jittery rodents”.

  23. puddlepeppers says:

    cheshirekittehkat—How twoo!

  24. Hunks ‘n hams! That should be a new tag…what say you, COers?

  25. …and is that a Takarazuka poster on the back of the door there? Next to the picture of chicken feet and the postcard of a human heart that looks like a duck?

  26. Hunks ‘n hams… Only if either is free!

  27. 😆 That hamster is probably screaming for help 😆

  28. Rosecitychild13 says:

    What’s really scary is that the dude in this picture looks exactly like my ex-boyfriend… =X

  29. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ PatitoGigante:

    ….er,….not to cast aspersions on yer truthfulness…but ….your camera manual
    SPECIFIES “rodents” in its instructions????


  30. wait

    is that hams?

    or framz?

    i always get them mixed up

  31. Yes. Fujica’s STX-1 (1979) was sold in some markets as the QT-Π.

  32. He ain’t heavy, he’s my hamster.

  33. It appears this pic was taken in a hair salon, which would explain the Eddie Munster hairdo. I’ve often had that wide-eyed look after a failed hair experiment. The ham is pulling it off tho!

  34. and on a wierd note… I have an ear worm from this post!

    you know that song Pum up the Volume,,,,

    IT is now non stop running through my head! like some evil 80’s nightmare!

  35. Pump up the volume

  36. That is the cutest fluffiest mole I’ve ever seen! 🙂

  37. So cute ❤ He looks like he's thinking "oh no oh no oh no oh no why do i get myself into these things??"

  38. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ PG:

    HOW DARE you incorporate the symbol for “Pi” into a camera name????

  39. Dreamspinner Cheryl says:

    Forget the “ham-hance”, we want a “hunk-hance”!

  40. ohh i recognize the poster in the back its from Australia. i think i recognize Hugh jackman’s hair

  41. That ham is perched and ready for action!

  42. Lula Mae says:

    So you can pump the ham, pump it up a little more… Somehow, I’m not impressed.

    I like the ham’s Mickey Mouse-style forehead, the border between white and grey fur.

  43. spongebrooke says:

    Pump up the ham
    Pump it up
    While your feet are stompin’
    And the ham is pumpin’
    Look at here the crowd is jumpin’
    Pump it up a little more
    Get the party going on the dance floor!
