Wimpy comes calling on Popeye around lunch time. Nobody appears to be home but a hamburger is sitting on the table. He looks around to be sure no one is watching him before he claims the sandwich as his own. As he picks the burger up, it speaks and tells him to keep his hands off. Wimpy is spooked and drops it immediately. He regains his composure and assumes he has imagined the hamburger talking, and reaches for it again. This time, it calls loudly for the police. Wimpy is so scared he runs out of the house screaming for help. After Wimpy leaves, Swee'Pea crawls out from under the table, happy that he stopped the moocher from appropriating his lunch.
