Mermaids do not exist, US government declares

In an unusual announcement the US government has assured people that mermaids most likely don't exist. In a statement from the National Ocean Service officials were keen to emphasise that the aquatic sirens of legend are fictitious following the broadcasting of an Animal Planet documentary entitled "Mermaids: The Body Found". The program portrayed what the creatures might look like and why they've stayed hidden for so long. "No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found," read the official statement in an announcement strangely similar to another made by the CDC following the 'zombie cannibal' attack last month which prompted them to state that "the CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead".
