I'll admit that I have been intrigued by the mystery, legend and beauty of mermaids. It's the stuff that fairy tales and science fiction movies are made of. We all know that mermaids are not real...or do we! It was early one Thursday morning when I turned on the television, channel surfed for a bit and that's when I saw coming up on the Animal Planet a show titled...Mermaids: The New Evidence. The brief synopsis tantalized me with promises of never before seen video of a mermaid, discovered by scientists and hush-hushed by the government. So, I made a cup of tea and plopped myself in my comfy chair then watched the entire show.
The show was hosted by Jon Frankel, his guests were a scientist Dr. Paul Robertson and a marine biologist Torsten Schmidt. Phooey! It was all a big joke! A mockumentary! A hoax!
