Foto Friday: The FeeJee Mermaid?

Have you ever heard of the FeeJee Mermaid?

It’s Foto Friday again and today is certainly a weird one! Mermaids? FeeJee? What gives?

I have to admit I hadn’t heard of the legends of the FeeJee Mermaid until very recently but did you know the mystery dates all the way back to 1842 and has quite a following? The picture you see here is from The Adams Family Travelling Medicine Show — their mermaid exhibit and other oddities were on display at The Brookville Raid of 2018.

I’m not here to suggest you buy into this conspiracy (unless of course, you want to!) but I do think there is some wisdom to be found here. Most notably is the quote in the pic from Ben Franklin…

“Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.”

So I guess the question is – what half does the FeeJee Mermaid fall in to? Are you gonna believe it?

Meanwhile, here’s another question for you: what do Stevie Wonder, Michael Jordan, and Abe Lincoln have in common? Discover the answer to that question and more in this article: The Power of Perspective.
