In a startling admission, Mermaid Melissa tweets “Hey guys, I am really sorry about that… My tail is always caught on things & gets me into trouble! I did not mean to pull the plug on super bowl!”
When contacted for a statement, she goes on to say, “I get really excited and was doing the worm across the floor. Next thing I knew everything went dark and I felt something wrapped around my fluke. Once I reached down and felt what it was, I panicked trying to find out where the outlet was.”
We are now learning that Melissa has sometimes been known to let her “Siren Side” out and some speculate if there might be a history of using her fluke as a weapon. At this time it is unclear if there is a hidden motive to this Mermaid’s agenda is actually a premeditated crime to help out the opposing team. Some speculate that the color of her tail could show who’s teams side she’s really on but when asked Mermaid Melissa replied, “I can’t help the color of my tail… I can’t change the color of my scales any more than you can change the color of your skin!”
“Something seems fishy about the entire situation” an onlooker at the scene shared with reporters. For now, until more details surface in the following weeks, we can only hope more light is shed on this ongoing investigation.
