    The agency made a statement last week clarifying that the sea species is not real after they received a few calls following a fictional Animal Planet show called Mermaids: The Body Found that confused some viewers as fact. After the May airing of the fiction show, designed to have a format similar to a documentary, some viewers had called the NOAA to learn more about the creatures.The agency released a statement under it's Ocean Facts section putting the theories to rest.

    It's a coverup! A conspiracy! They just want all the mermaids to themselves! I'll never stop believing!

    Despite the headline I think the real story is how gullible people were to not realize it's a fictional show. Although it's SLIGHTLY understandable since the show is on Animal Planet, a station known for it's documentary style coverage (I think.) Also the show is called "Mermaids: The Body Found" so I GUESS you could tune in mid show, see the title and start combing their hair with a fork, the Poor Unfortunate Fools. There are 2 "My Little Mermaid" references in my previous sentence.

    Whatever you say, Uncle Sam (if that is your real name, which I doubt!). I trust the experts.

    Who said it's research? The entity stated there's no evidence for it, evidence they would have run across in their years of other fields of study in the water.

    I keep remembering that picture where you had to choose which Mermaid you want? The top part human and fish tail or the fish head and human legs... *shivers*
