Mermaid bread (le pain des six reines)
Since mermaids have fled humans, they retired in their six kingdoms in the deepest of the seas and oceans.
Their last statement, given in a flow of bubbles, explained they strongly fear ending up in what they called « water circuses » where they would be forced to perform, together with dolphins and other prisoners, for over-fed silly audiences who do not give a damn about animal welfare as long as they are entertained.
Moreover, they thought they might be forced to rap instead of singing their melodious chants.
Well, anyway, mermaids are vegetarian as they would not dare offending Poseidon by eating his subjects.
So they eat mainly bread, a very rare trove which happens to turn blue when taken out of the water.
