Default No evidence of mermaids, says US government

July 3rd, 2012, 21:17
"There is no evidence that mermaids exist, a US government scientific agency has said.

The National Ocean Service made the unusual declaration in response to public inquiries following a TV show on the mythical creatures.

It is thought some viewers may have mistaken the programme for a documentary…"

What's next? US government statement that boogeymen, vampires, werewolves (etc.) don't exist either?

Your tax dollars at work. Long live Big Brother.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Well, they have tried to dispute fairies. Unsuccessfully, I may add.

You would have preferred "mermaid research has been outsourced to MerQUEST inc., who can be reached at 0-800-MERMAIDS at $0.50 / min" ?

To be fair, most of the American public is stupid enough that a declaration was necessary.

Its a 3 paragraph post on their website saying "I don't care what stupid show you saw on the Discovery Channel; no mermaids aren't real." So maybe wasted tax dollar.

Mermaids don't exist ? What comes next ? Area 51 ?
