Since seeing Pirates of the Caribbean I am now a little scared of mermaids.
I’ve always thought they’re quite sinister anyway.  I mean, things that live in the deep, dark depths of the ocean aren’t always the nicest creatures, are they?  All those angler fish and creatures with lots of teeth and giant squids and, of course, the Kraken.
To be honest, I’m not sure if mermaids used to be seen as a bad omen or not (does anyone know?) but I suppose, when you’ve been at sea in constant male company for years, you’re going to start seeing women in the strangest places.  I can’t imagine they were particularly welcomed by a ship; all it’s going to take is one idiot to try and rescue ‘her’ or jump in.  And this in the days when most sailors couldn’t swim because that way you’d die faster if you fell in, rather than struggling until you were exhausted.
So mermaids = sinister.  Sorry Ariel.
