This strange sydrome
occurs most commonly in drummers
, especially those of the marching band
variety, but can also occur in males who wank off
Popeye Syndrome by definition is a muscle deformation in that the subject's forearms grow larger than his biceps. This is not uncommon in drummers with a good work ethic. I now am the proud owner of two fifteen inch forearms, while my biceps pale at a lousy thirteen and a half.
This is due to the fact that I have been playing drums for six years and have been practicing over two hours a day for more than six months. I enjoy my big forearms, but when I take off my shirt I always feel ridiculous. I also have developed some disgustingly large veins on my arms. They bubble up a lot, and when I play they get even bigger. I had to get blood testing for college last week, and even the nurse made a comment. Grrrr.
Ah, well. So it goes. In the words of a great cartoon, "I yam what I yam."
