Gluteus maximus reminds docs of Popeye

Doctors at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, UK were apparently so amused at treating a particular injury that they made it the butt of a joke, naming it after a cartoon character. This one can infer even from the title of their newly published study:

Popeye gluteus: Gluteus maximus avulsion following a road traffic collision,” T.A. Wood, D.M. Taylor, P.J. Parker, Injury Extra, vol. 42, no. 5, May 2011, Pages 49-50. The authors are at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, UK.
