Well alrighty then!!
For those of you who may BELIEVE the Animal Planet "MOCKumentary" was a DOCumentary, here's something you will be happy to read;
For the rest of us, who realize this show was NOT a fact-based record of anything, it will still be amusing to read. (And will also confirm for you that 'some' people WILL believe anything.)Posted on weeklyworldnews.com (which is apparently like a web version of The national Enquirer) on July 5:
(2 days after the ACTUAL statement by NOAA denying their existence was posted) (the link to the webpage: http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/49740/u-s-confirms-existence-of-mermaids/)U.S. CONFIRMS EXISTENCE OF MERMAIDS

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) confirmed that mermaids exist and that they are growing in numbers.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reportedly published a post on their “Ocean Facts” newsfeed titled “Conclusive Evidence of the Existence of Aquatic Humanoids.”
The agency went on to say that “magic females”, who first appeared in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ag, when modern humans began to sail the seas, do exist and are living in all the oceans of the world.
Animal Planet television recently aired a special called “Mermaids: The Body Found,” that also proved the existence of mermaids.
National Ocean Service spokeswoman Sandy Nixon told WWN that “at least 65 mermaid researches and experts gathered on the island of Tahiti to examine all the known evidence and have concluded, emphatically, that half human half-fish hybrids are living peacefully among us.
Mermaid experts say that the majority of mermaids are in the warmer waters of the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, but that many have been spotted in the Pacific Ocean and Southern Atlantic. ”There is a large school of mermaids, swimming just outside Ocean City Maryland,” said mermaidologist, Marcus Plumkin, of the University of Florida.
WWN has also learned that recently the U.S. government has captured 7 mermaids and that they are being kept at an undisclosed aquarium, where they are being studied. President Obama has personally met the mermaids and was quite impressed – according to reports.
So, if you’re at the beach… keep a lookout for mermaids. They are out there!
"The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reportedly published a post on their “Ocean Facts” newsfeed titled “Conclusive Evidence of the Existence of Aquatic Humanoids.”I checked.....this newsfeed is real, and NO they did not publish ANY post like this.
”There is a large school of mermaids, swimming just outside Ocean City Maryland,”Hmmmm....anyone ever hear any reports of sightings of this "large school of mermaids"??
