Is this long stretch of cold weather enough to make you move waaaay down South?  Need to find a job and like to swim?

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Florida is looking for mermaids and this may be your ticket out of this state.

The park is holding auditions for swimmers who can hold their breath for a long time and don't mind wearing a fish tail.  The park is known as the "Only City of Live Mermaids" and holds live underwater mermaid performances every day of the year.
