New Evidence that Mermaids Exist...Sike

Date: May 26

In a 2-hour special called Mermaid: The Body Found, scientists and "experts" led viewers to believe that there were actually human-like beings living under the sea (no Jamaican crabs though). The mockumentary was so convincing that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration got overwhelmed with calls about the creatures. Once things had been cleared up, all that was left was disappointment, relief, and lots of mermaid jokes.
