The Unsuspecting Fisherman
I've been thinking about doing this one for a long time now. I've always loved mermaids and I've always loved my friend Carl and I wanted to do a papercut featuring Carl. He is a marine biologist and so I thought, "Ooo...I'll do one where there's a fisherman and he's being beguiled by a mermaid and then other mermaids are stealing fish from him while he's not looking." Originally the guy was supposed to be freaking out because if a topless chick with a tail came swimming up to his boat, Carl would climb out of his skin. But then I decided to give this guy hair, so it's not a good representation of Carl and so I loosened him up a bit and now he's being entranced by the lovely lady.
