“A new species has recently been found and marine- biologists believe it to be the strangest animal ever to swim the seven seas!” said the news reporter. “The ‘laughing seal’ is known to laugh when it feels it’s in danger or is in a funny matter. The species has got children all around the world doing the seal laugh. There is only 50 of these animals around the world so we must help protect them as we have only just discovered them and they are already an endangered species.” The news reporter had everyone nodding. Would they know it was all fake?
