U.S. government issues statement denying existence of mermaids
In what seems a whimsical mood, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has posted a page in the “Ocean Facts” section of the website of the National Ocean Service denying the existence of mermaids. After discussing the origins of the mermaid legend, the site asks, “But are mermaids real?” The NOAA responds with a no. “No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found.”
The site notes that mermaids appear as mythical figures in every seafaring culture, in addition to other fantastic figures, and that paintings appearing to show women with fish-like features date back to the Stone Age.
I can't make this stuff up....

That's what they want you to think.
You're a paranoid until they do it. Then you're a stinker for not wanting it.
