"I'm a mermaid, man."
It's kind of a long story, but the blobfish is my spirit animal.
I made this little sign earlier in the school year, using a photo of a blobfish that I clipped from a discarded book about ocean life.
Not long after I posted this picture to the library's Instagram account, Saturday Night Live featured a skit about three mermaids who rescue some sailors, one of the mermaids being "35% woman, 65% blobfish."
You can watch the skit, if you haven't seen it yet:
So now it's become a running joke. The other day when we were using our library's green screen (for other highly professional purposes) I couldn't resist using it to take a blobfish photo.
