If there are pictures, then it must be true.

Everyone should immediately be able to tell that it's not a real mermaid!

It has a freakin' mustache! It's obviously Aquaman!

Even the above link says its not TRUE...



omments: Not true. These snapshots were circulating well before the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 and were previously alleged to have been taken in the Philippines. In any case, mermaids are creatures of myth and legend, not reality, and while there does exist an ancient tradition of fabricating bogus "mermaid carcasses" out of fish skins and animal bones for exhibition, there are no documented examples of the real thing. Read more about fake mermaids...

Yes, and they were very supportive, as they were when Batman and Robin finally came out of the closet and made their (poorly kept) secret relationship public.
