The series of images
at the top were created for an interactive online oceanography
test aimed at high schoolers. They appeared as part of the results
page one would view after completing the test. Originally the
mermaid was created as a result image for those who scored highest
on the test (since who knows more about the sea than someone
who lives in it, and also I felt the female character representation
would be appreciated by women's libbers - D.W.), but the
NOSB finally declared it "offensive" or at least too
"sexual" and we were forced to replaced it with a whale
lounging in an cushy chair drinkin' lemonade and watching movies.
You can take the test for yourself here.
