    I think the most important thing about that report is that it shows the basic intelligence level in the States!

    However, let's not be too harsh on them...we have our own history of stupidity via the television....

    They did a similar program to the mermaid one (or how it sounds, at least) on dragons that similarly confused one of my uni friends as we sat watching it. He knew it was a pretend documentary when we started. He knew it was just an exercise in CGI and what-if. But still, after two hours, he turned round and asked "so wait, are dragons real then?"

    This confusion may have been related to student cigarettes, mind you.

    I haddock idea that this would all begin!

    Fish puns are sooo last thread, that I don't believe any of you will be in tuna with the current feeling against fishy puns.

    Now, I shall sit back, relax, and watch all the pollacks spouted over the following pages!

    I'm sure most people's sole reason to post in threads like this is to inflict terrible puns on everyone else.

    I sincerely regret posting this story now.

    I can see that doing so has opened a wound that many you had only just managed to seal. I reel-y hope that we can all put this behind us now and forget it ever happened.
