An organisation in America devoted to defending the rights of mermaids is thought to be suing the Israeli city that earlier this month offered a $1m prize for evidence of mermaids in its waters on the grounds that it "damages the mermaid legacy".

"American organization says $1 million prize offered by northern Israeli city to whoever can prove existence of imaginary sea creature off city's shores 'badly and outrageously damages the legendary mermaid legacy'."

I see... thats a nice way to make money. I'm going to set up an organisation that devoted to protecting pink flying unicorns and sue Richard Dawkins for insisting they are not real.

Another great example of why people hate us. America always finds a way to trump its last "dumbass" card smh... And I bet they get some kind of government funding.

I hereby claim I am suing the Mermaid Medical Association on part of pure stupidity and incompetence towards the IQ of all Homo Sapiens. Simply put, they are a disgrace to our legacy. I'll get to the people of Kiryat Yam looking for the damn thing at a later time.

Hell I doubt it would have went ahead if people actually knew the mermaid protecting organization actually existed in the first place.

I'm more surprised to hear there's actually an organisation in America devoting themselves to defend the rights of mermaids. I`m surprised your surprised. The US is the most gullible nation on the planet

LOL! I think your all gonna be eating your words here in a few months as to the reality of mermaids as well as giants. The govts release of some info looms pretty soon. There are so many things that are true that reality might seem more bizarre than science fiction...
