The Mermaid Autopsy

Brazilian artist Walmor Corrêa caught a mermaid and opened her up. He also found a cheetah woman and The Penguin. How's he catching so many of these guys? He also makes spooky memento mori music boxes.

Odd fact- the first time I masturbated, it was to a life-sized drawing of a mermaid.

@saythatscool

That's quite a tail.

saythatscool

@atipofthehat Ever since then, I've been drawn to scale.

@saythatscool Splash + Darryl Hannah poster?!? That is not odd at all.

Okay Yeah

@saythatscool Did you think "a whole new world" to yourself? Too far?

I dated a couple of mermaids, but the strategically placed hair got too annoying. Get a shirt or show me!

@Patrick M I love you.

Okay Yeah

@Patrick M I will choose to not tell anyone what gender or life form my child is. Male, female, merman, mermaid, WHO CARES?

shenannies

How does the baby come out? How'd she get pregnant in the first place? How does she use the loo? So many questions...

Okay Yeah

@shenannies Yeah, seriously, this didn't clear ANY of my questions about mermaid anatomy up.

@shenannies I always thought mermaids would get those long, stringy poos like fish do that mysteriously appear from beneath a fin you didn't even know had an opening in it.

As a home-cook and a man who loves the ocean, what I really need is a butchers chart.

apples and oranges

House of the Spirits, anyone?

I love that book to death, but the passage in the very beginning where the two men are performing an autopsy on the sister with green hair, one of them does some weird maybe-necrophilia-maybe-not shit, and then you find out, SHE IS A MERMAID??
god bless magical realism.

I just want to know why one of them is SPIDER MAN.

This poor lady would have a permanent case of prune fingers.

Errrm...okay. So. I am going to be a killjoy here, but based on the Basic Anatomy class that I just took...this dude just took human organs and put them in the top half of a mermaid (IT IS STILL COOL THOUGH).

Maybe there are a few differences, but, *dang and blast it all*, I can't make the picture big enough to see. Like...there's not even a difference (that I can see) in the lungs, which you'd think would have to be pretty different since a mermaid lives underwater.

Any other nurses / doctors / science majors here who see this? Or is there something that I'm missing?
