|Well clearly I'm not the ONLY one who's wondered!|
So I've been thinking about this and put in some extensive research. In other words, I googled "mermaids" for about 20seconds, got bored then decided to come up with my own theories on the matter.
Firstly, does anyone else think it's dodgy that there's one old-guy merman (Neptune) surrounded by all those fit young fishy models, both male and female? A little reminiscent of Poppa Smurf if you ask me, but don't get me started on that one.
And what do you suppose is happening to all the girls once they reach...ooh I dunno...25 years old? Actually, it must be a younger age than that because I haven't seen any pictures of mermaids wearing supportive bras so I'd imagine gravity would start taking action even sooner. Or would it? What exactly ARE the laws of gravity underwater? Anyway, if you ask me, those merguys are up to something and it's not looking good for the girls. Maybe it's like that episode of Star Trek TNG I saw once where everyone of a certain age had a big party and then were sent off to the Great Beyond the next day. Or maybe it's something a little more sinister...
Oh...wait, she fell in love and became human, right? So she got to cook for her prince, clean his underpants (which would have been an entirely foreign concept to her), darn his socks...then one day she woke up and found that she had cellulite on her thighs...I stand my ground. It's still a horror story. I haven't the heart to break it to C.
Just had another thought: As I came out of the shower tonight and slathered myself in anti-wrinkling lotions and potions I decided that soaking in salt water 24/7 would wreak havoc on the skin. Think about it...
