Mermaids don’t exist, declares US government – Odd News – Digital Spy
The National Ocean Service has declared that mermaids do not exist.
Part of the US government, the scientific agency made the statement as a result of people enquiring about the fictitious half-human half-fish sea creatures.
The Animal Planet cable network in America on May 27 aired a tongue-in-cheek ‘documentary’ about the possible existence of mermaids called Mermaids: The Body Found.
Afterwards, the National Ocean Service received questions from people who had watched the show not realising it was fictional.
