A good friend of mine recommends (metaphorical) codslapping as a way of dealing with male chauvinists, clueless fools, and others who would benefit from the impact of a large, cold, wet fish in the face. This mermaid takes a more fundamental approach, but it’s the same idea.
She looks just like me, assuming I were thinner and had a visible mermaid’s tail. Definitely the same expression.
This fabulous image is from the brilliant cartoonist HOB. You can see (and buy!) his work in person in the dealers room at FOGcon, March 11-13, 2011, in San Francisco, CA. FOGcon is a new speculative fiction convention featuring panels, writing workshops, book signings, readings, parties, free food, and more good conversation per square yard than almost any other venue in San Francisco. Yes, I will be there.
