Someone has done the research with a bunch of Chinese people. And the results were shocking!

 

I want to see how foreigners will response to this.

 

And of course, I will let you know both of the results.

A.    no doubt about it.  B is just a fish, you can't look, talk, or even stand seeing a humanfish being around u day in and day out.  B would just wind-up on the cooking fire.

Let me guess...  The Fish-head, because "fish head soup," right?   Not exactly "shocking."

It would really depend on which culture's folklore the mermaid originated from. http://www.realmermaids.net/mermaid-legends/

If I'm ever lucky enough to be chilling out on an uninhabited island I probably chose it for the solitude and I'd want to keep it peaceful and serene.

 

The last thing I'd want is some talking head harshing my mellow. If I had to have company there I'd go for B.

'Choose?'

That certainly depends on the bait used as every experienced fisherman (like me ) would tell you.

 

And when your bait is proven successful  ....

"Noli equi dentes inspicere donati " .... that's how we said LTA, when I was 'fishing' still dressed in toga. .....

 

Good morning! It's sunny in me city .... for the shades Sunny with +13*C AM temp....

Well... "A" could talk with you, possibly hunt fish for you... and swim to find someone to rescue you. And it could give you some form of pleasure having a human upper half.

 

"B" would die on land (no lungs) or swim poorly in the water... can't really communicate, you could get pleasure from it... but who the hell wants to do it with a fish head/body female?

 

"A" seems to win without a doubt.

A. Mostly because I couldn't live with something that looked like it came out of a Monty Python show.

Hey Spongebob, what were the results of that survey you mentioned?

 

My guess is everyone just wanted to know where the island is so they can go and catch the mermaid. Mermaids are super rare, therefore they'd be worth top dollar in any hotpot restaurant, especially if you tell the customers eating mermaid will make their testicles bigger.

 

The fisherman who catches that mermaid would never need to work again.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
