We saw this a few years ago.  It certainly is something.

This is a great museum. I stayed for the education on ocean ecology but I came for the mermaids!

My great-uncle's love of topless mermaid sculptures is why my mom didn't let him teach me chainsaw carving.

I really dislike clothing on mermaids.  Accepting that you have a fish/mammal hybrid that has breasts, there's no real reason for those breasts to need support in a marine environment, and no reason for mermaids to develop clothing in general.

Look, there are some issues that are important enough you have to take a stand on principle.  This isn't one of them, but I'm doing it anyway.

Apparently somewhere around 2005-07-23, there was a mermaid statue that was controversial, so some Farker shooped one of the SBB women in place of the controversial bits.

The Mermaid Museum in Westport does not support this image.  This really belongs in the Reverse Mermaid Museum over in Eastport.

They should fill the whole museum with manatee exhibits.

Looks like a small pre-fab building, with that ugly corrugated siding. What exactly makes it "International"? Did the owner take two years of French in high school?

Something to do in Westport aside from launching your own boat or hiring a charter to take you out fishing? Noice.

I actually mermaid swim to help with weightloss and to keep me active. I swim with a mono fin and tail over my lower half, I have taught myself twists turns swimming in a circle and blowing heart kisses. While I admit I'm not as pretty as a real mermaid would be. Mermaids put a feminine spin on environmentalism. They are the mothers of the ocean nurturing the helpless creatures who live in the ocean.

alice_600: While I admit I'm not as pretty as a real mermaid would be


The use of the phrase 'real mermaid' bothers me a bit.  I think it's safe to say Columbus saw manatees when he thought he'd made a real sighting of the mythical creatures.

If you want to imagine what a human evolved into a half-fish would look like, don't think of a scaly fish back half, we're too far separated from them evolutionarily for that to be likely. I think it's probably better to imagine a dolphin's back half, with the smooth, insulated skin continuing up to the head, which would be bent 'back' 90 degrees to face forward during swimming.  And the fingers would be webbed, of course.  And maybe there'd be a blowhole on the back of the neck.  Breasts would be a problem and would probably be flat for streamlining.

*TL;DR*, you're almost certainly better looking than a 'realistic' mermaid!
