As proud as I am of my Irish heritage, I will admit that we believe in some pretty goofy shit.
We are fishermen from way back and believe in any number of aquatic phantasms–nymphs, Jenny-Linds, Selkies, sea serpents and many other manifestations of floating apparitions.
Mermaids are the killers though. They are beautiful and imperiled, and many a Mick dipshit has dove overboard to “save” one clinging to a rock only to find that by the time he gets to her after fighting off a rolling sea.she actually looks like Don Knotts with tits.
I decided to make a Chicago Mermaid, a blues girl. Who wouldn’t do you like that. Who wouldn’t hide her beauty. No. . .she would save you with the blues in shades of blue and green and velvety black.
This one too, is for my pal and fellow Mick, John Manion.
