 Sky news -  Mermaid spotted

Quote
Israel is in the grips of mermaid fever after numerous sightings of the mythical sea creature off its coast


One town council is taking the reports so seriously it is offering a $1m (£609,000) reward to anyone who can prove the existence of a mermaid in its waters.





like Scotlands Loch Ness Monster...this will no doubt draw in the crowds

it made me laugh when i saw the article was by 'Dominic Waghorn, Middle East correspondent'

Sky-what have you got for us Dominic?
Dominic-Mermaids in Israel
Sky-oh F.F.S


other Hoaxes(and yes i am calling it that)with mermaids(from Wiki)
Quote
During the Renaissance and Baroque eras, dugongs, frauds and victims of sirenomelia were exhibited in wunderkammers as mermaids.

In the 19th century, P. T. Barnum displayed in his museum a taxidermal hoax called the Fiji mermaid.

Others have perpetrated similar hoaxes, which are usually papier-m‚chť fabrications or parts of deceased creatures, usually monkeys and fish, stitched together for the appearance of a grotesque mermaid.

In the wake of the 2004 tsunami, pictures of Fiji "mermaids" circulated on the Internet as supposed examples of items that had washed up amid the devastation, though they were no more real than Barnum's exhibit.

Given how vast the ocean is I think itís possible that something like a humanoid mermaid could exist.  That said I think the chances that said creature would be even remotely attractive to humans is highly unlikely.  Things that live in the ocean tend to be scaly, fat, deadly and/or smell bad.

I know I'm stating the obvious, but why is that any different than most land dwellers?

The condition is called Ichthyosis and it's how I make my money at county fairs.  Thanks for making fun of it.  I thought Danes were supposed to be nice people?

I was writhing in pain as you and your friends threw rocks at me, but I suppose if it helps you sleep better at night, you could pretend i was dancing.

ahh i forgot about that mermaid


i think a Whale is having sex with her here..

old joke-they say that 90% of Whales sperm goes into the ocean while it has sex,and that's why the sea is salty icon_lol

'sea' below disgust



don't click if easily offended/disgusted/outright pissed off with everything in the world
Spoiler for Hiden:

OH MY GOD!!!!

FW: Don't drink the sea water... read below first....

The average blue whale produces over 400 gallons of sperm when it ejaculates, but only 10% of that actually makes it into his mate. So 360 gallons are spilled into the ocean every time one unloads, and you wonder why the ocean is so salty...
