Mermaid Meat is Halal

Another day, another silly Sheikh's proclamation...

On a daily basis, stupid information floods the internet, and everyday CairoScene sifts through the nonsense to find you the absolute stupidest aneurysm inducing nugget of Arab silliness.Today we highlight the breaking news that all of you have been waiting for. According to Sheikh al-Fawzaan not only are mermaids real, but thankfully they are halal to eat.

There is the ‘human of the ocean,’ there is something from a type of fish upon the appearance of humans, they call it the “ocean human” [otherwise termed as "mermaid"] and it can be eaten, it is from the items that can be caught and eaten from the sea, yes, even if it was upon the appearance of a man or woman...” explains the Sheikh.

We aren't sure what this Sheikh was smoking, but what we do know is we want some. How, in this day and age, a grown man can believe in the existence of mermaids, let alone eating them is beyond us.
