Not to be confused with Arf! Arf!.
This is a story from Popeye, the original series published by Dell in 1948. The series was later renamed to Popeye the Sailor as it continued with other publishers. It has also been reprinted in other comic books by other publishers since then.
Wimpy walks by as Popeye is laughing hysterically so he asks him what is so amusing. Popeye tells him that Swee'Pea is building a boat, but Wimpy does not understand why that is so funny. Popeye explains that it would never float and there are no ponds nearby.
Wimpy notes to Popeye that boys should never be underestimated and Swee'Pea will find a way to get good use out of his boat. Popeye calls him silly so Wimpy bets him lunch that Swee'Pea will find a good use for it. Popeye agrees to take the bet just as Swee'Pea sails his boat past him, down the sidewalk on a set of wheels.
