You know those things where there is a picture of a character of some sort and the face is cut out so you can take a picture with your face in place of the character’s face? I tried figuring out if there was an official name for those things but couldn’t find it. In any case, there is one of Wimpy (the hamburger-loving character from Popeye the Sailor Man) in Chester, Illinois underneath the Popeye mural! You can’t not take a picture with this Wimpy photo op!
