Special Notes: The inspiration for this mug was detailed by Three Dots and a Dash: “The Fijian Mermaid (sometimes referred to as Feejee or Fiji Mermaid) was a hoax promoted by P.T. Barnum in the 1840s as a sideshow gaff. The odd-looking creature was presented to spectators as a mummified “half mammal, half fish” wonder, but in reality was the torso of a monkey sewn to the tail of a fish.”
