“God replied to Moses: I am who I am. Then he added: This is what you will tell the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you.” — Exodus 3:1

♪♫ I yam what I yam / I gotta lotta muscle and I only gots one eye / I never hurts nobody and I’ll never tell a lie / Top to me bottom and bottom to me top / That’s the way it is ’til the day that I drop / I yam what I yam ♫♪

I never really linked Popeye to Moses as a kid. Now older, it appears the cartoonist portrayed Popeye as “Moses transformed” at the burning bush: go out in spite of yourself, tell others that God is with them… and know that God has given you the freedom and support to make all good things possible. Use a staff or some spinach, if you like.
