Check Out These Pics Of A Real-Life Popeye With 19-Inch Forearms

Meet Jeff Dabe, a champion arm wrestler with 19-inch forearms. Dabe competes in the World Arm Wrestling League, traveling the country and manhandling competitors with his Popeye arms and ridiculously large hands.

Seriously, some of these photos look straight out of a cartoon.

This one is a side-by-side of Dabe and Andre the Giant, a man who suffered from gigantism and acromegaly.

Surprisingly, Dabe is completely normal. He doesn’t suffer from elephantiasis or the aforementioned acromegaly. He simply has very large limbs. But things haven’t been so easy for him in the arm-wrestling department. In 1986, he suffered an injury to his dominant hand that prevented him from competing. Twenty-six years later, he decided to start using the other one. And he’s doing quite well.

Here’s a compilation video of him beating the crap out of people.

All in all, Dabe seems to be enjoying life.

“Thanks to the World Arm Wrestling League, I am now competing with people from all over America.”

“It’s so fun to travel to places we wouldn’t normally go.”

“I was always good at arm wrestling, but the size of my hands did shock people at first. I had the strength to back it up.”

“People freak out when they see my hands in real life.”

But why would they freak out Jeff? It’s not like, OH MY GOD HE’S THE HULK.
