Love books but don't have the time to read? Why not just look at a cartoon loosely based on a book instead!

In this pun on Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle, we see Ripped Van Winkle, an old guy with a long beard, asleep under a tree, who, with his six pack and toned muscles, is very fit.
Oh, to fall asleep for 20 years and wake up toned!
