There’s a Wimpy photo stand-in in Chester, Illinois: the Home of Popeye the Sailor Man.
Photo stand-ins (also called face in the hole boards, photo cutout boards, or comic foregrounds) are those big life-sized paintings (or photographs), usually of a person or animal, with a hole cut out of the face for a person (like you or me) to stand behind to get picture as the character.

Here is one of Wimpy (the hamburger-loving character from Popeye the Sailor Man) in Chester, Illinois at Chester Square Gazebo Park, right underneath the Popeye mural! It’s a big picture of Wimpy from Popeye with his face gone to replace with your own! How fun!
You can’t not take a picture with this Wimpy photo op!
