Real Or Fake - Mermaid Body Found!
It's time for another round of Real Or Fake! I take a story or photo from the internet and dig deeper to see if I can find out the truth about it and then let the readers know if it is Real or Fake!
Today the subject is the "Mermaid body found" story. For those who don't know the back story, here it is in a nut shell: "A mermaid body has washed up on the beach and if found by someone." As you look around you will find different places associated with this mermaid body. Some reports say it was found in Mexico, some say Ireland, some say Hawaii and various other places.
Accompanying the story is several photos show the torso and the tail fins of the suppose creature.
Here are some of the photos.
Normally this is a close up of the face, which appears to be rather detailed.
Then there is a body shot of the creature on the beach. -->
<-- and one showing the long flowing tail fins.
All pretty impressive looking.
As most of you might already know, this "Mermaid Body Found" story is a FAKE. It was a prop created for the Pirate of the Caribbean movies.
Of course, some of you might not want to take my word for it, so here is a couple of links to the prop.
