"UGH-UGH-UGH-UGH-UGH-UGH!" (or "Arf! Arf!" if you prefer)
Seen in Jersey City, NJ yesterday: Popeye the Sailor is one of my all-time favorite characters since I can remember, but this quarter-fueled kiddie ride of him in a dinghy is horrifying. It may be intended to simulate a ride over the bounding waves when activated, but the rocking motions and one of the locations of where a child would sit in it makes it look like Popeye's raunching kids up the fudge tunnel.
