Hmmm, it looks like many of the Israelis are just as drunk and stupid as anyone else, and their Board of Tourism certainly as willing to fluff up the gullible as any midway carney.

Would you believe a mermaid is now on the tourist menu? No? Well it is!
Mermaid Sightings Claimed in Israel

Fri Aug 14, 9:17 am ET

Locals and tourists in the Israeli town of Kiryat Yam have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales.


An alleged mermaid, said to resemble a cross between a fish and a young girl, only appears at sunset. It performs a few tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night.


One of the first people to see the mermaid, Shlomo Cohen, said, "I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way. At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail."


The sightings apparently began several months ago.


$1 million reward


The town's tourism board is of course delighted with their newfound fame and local mystery fauna. Taking a cue from the town of Inverness, Scotland (on the shore of Loch Ness), the Kiryat Yam government has offered a $1 million reward for the first person to photograph the creature. Town spokesman Natti Zilberman thinks the reward money is well-spent. "I believe if there really is a mermaid then so many people will come to Kiryat Yam, a lot more money will be made than $1 million."

Doesn't Disney hold the copy-write on this nonsense?

True, true, but some have a tighter grip on it than most.

Oh, no doubt about it!. These sorts of things always are, at least the top half. From my perspective however, no matter how beautious the top might be, the bottom is fit only for the skillet.

Reminds me of an old joke; Two fishermen have been out all day with no luck, and when they're about to call it quits one latches on to a real rod bender. He hauls in a mermaid, with a beautiful face, fantastic breasts, and a shiny tail. After admiring her form for a while he throws her back. His buddy gives him a quizzical look and says "Why?", The guy replies "How?"
