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.

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.

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

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

Wow. Who knew?

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...

Manatee Smith

Manatee Beckham...oooo grin

brightnearly Tue 27-Aug-13 21:12:18

Manatee - would that work as a first name?

TooTabooToBoo Tue 27-Aug-13 21:00:47

I knew.

I didn't

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

DarceyBissell Tue 27-Aug-13 17:59:54

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

TooTabooToBoo Tue 27-Aug-13 09:57:45

Eau de Fish

TiggyD Tue 27-Aug-13 07:49:18

TiggyD Tue 27-Aug-13 07:47:50

A walrus/seal combo.

TooTabooToBoo Tue 27-Aug-13 06:43:59

A manatee is a sea creature, looks li a bit like a sealion but isn't.

I am the Puddle Shaky

I've been mostly lurking and posting a little bit. How are you doing?

I have some bad memories of soggy lemon curd sandwiches at rainy picnics in the car on bank holidays. However, they were marginally better than the stinky egg sandwiches that we used to feed to the ducks...

I've just realised that was duck abuse sad

bless the poor, bored teenagers. They will be back in school soon
