That are made up just to get some sort of attention. "To the thick heads" this post is not for attention it's to debate the need to post fake crap for attention.

And by that I don't mean the new Cheryl Cole perfume "A Touch Of Hippo".

Manatees are what old sailors thought were mermaids. Hardly anyone knows that.

I knew.

I didn't

wondering how long it is before somebody tells me to stop resurrecting one of the 90% crap threads

Manatee - would that work as a first name?

Manatee Smith

Manatee Beckham...oooo grin

Why are 90% of the posts on Mumsnet crap?

Because 90% of everything is crap.

Sturgeon's Law

Eg if it's only 90% that's crap, we're no worse than anything else in the great field of literary effort out there...

so 10% of everything I ever say online is not crap.

Wow. Who knew?

grin

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manatee

i would have answered dugong Darcey but what do you know, they are related to the manatee or sea-cow charming and I have seen the manatee up close - awesome creatures but like mermaids? really?
Just how dehydrated/drunk/out of it/sex starved were the sailors?
i did not know manati came from the word breast. Thanking you smile

Michael - Seriously, manatees sit on rocks and make wailing sounds. Early sailors - drunk, sex-starved of course - thought they were mermaids, singing siren songs, luring them to their deaths on the rocks.
Didn't see them up close of course.
But then no-one's ever seen God up close.
