A documentary that aired on the Animal Planet on Sunday night says that a Mermaid body has been found. The announcement came as quite a surprise to viewers, many of whom thought that the documentary was real. It wasn't.

Unfortunately, not everyone has gotten the memo, and "mermaid body found" continues to arouse excitement online.
