In 1841 before the days of his 3-ring circus spectacular, PT Barnum ran a museum in New York. Its halls and shelves were crowded with oddities and curiosities from the world over. Now, Barnum was never one to let the truth get in the way of a good story and trusted his audience to acknowledge the wink and enjoy the spectacle anyway. So when he was presented with a specimen labelled “The Feegee Mermaid”, he jumped at chance to display this exotic creature. Never mind that it was very clearly just the badly taxidermized head and torso of a small monkey sewn to the tale of a fish.
