Mermaids are supposed to live in the sea.
But what about mermaid sheds?
That’s been the question for authorities this week, when a Coast Guard vessel found a derelict mermaid shack adrift in the Gulf of Mexico, which reportedly floated from Florida to the coast of Louisiana following a tropical storm.
The shed, featuring a painting of a mermaid, a sea turtle and an octopus, bears a blue door and a sign with the word “shed” affixed.
With no one claiming the floater, authorities say they won’t try to tow it to shore.
