|"'Feejee Mermaid' has become the generic term for the many fake mermaids that can be found around the world..."
This article contains information relating to a hoax. According to Cambridge dictionary a hoax is "a plan to deceive a large group of people; a trick."
In 2014, a photo of a giant squid of giant proportions in Santa Monica appeared in The Lightly Braised Turnip, supposedly bigger due to the Fukushima Radiation.
The squid appeared on Twitter all days, with hashtags such as #RadioactiveGigantism or #GiantSeaCreature.
The squid is real but not the photo. The squid is from a photo of a Giant Squid that washed up in Cantabria, Spain. The squid was made bigger and put in a photo of a beached whale in Chile. This just shows that hoaxers are getting worse as the years go past.
