“Are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found.”- The National Oceanic and Atmostpheric Administration
Well you heard it here first, folks. NOAA recently posted a page on their site called Ocean Facts and in a list of common questions about ocean life they’ve asked, “Are mermaids real?” and unequivocally answered it that no, they are not.
This may come as a shock to some of us, who have secretly wanted to be a mermaid since childhood. But sadly, like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, it turns out that mermaids too are merely figments of our imagination.
Or are they? I know one mermaid who would beg to differ. Check out her site at Mermaids in Motion if you think NOAA may have just missed this sighting.
