UN-fairy Exposure

I'll be the first person to tell you that you should believe in fairies.
Even if I weren't obsessed with Peter Pan,  I'd still tell you to do so.

Yes, I believe in fairies.

But here's a guy who is, it would seem, either making a mockery of the belief or trying to profit from it or both.  Jose Maldonado, a 22-year-old bricklayer in Guadalajara claims to have a real fairy.  He says:   I was picking guavas and I saw a twinkling. I thought it was a firefly. I picked it up and felt that it was moving; when I looked at it I knew that it was a fairy godmother.

It died, so he put it in some formaldehyde. Now he "allows" people to take a gander at it for a fee.  Seriously?

Just look at it.  Like I said, I'm all for the belief, but you've got to be pretty hard up to want to see a fairy to give any sort of credence to THIS sad little piece of plastic.  What a horrid way to make a few bits of cash.

Saw it twinkling, eh?  Can anyone say "Glimmer of plastic coupled with working out in the sun too long"?  Good!  I knew you could!
Came out some time later, here's the proof
that  Jose is being over-taxed
mentally and physically

Please, don't let this taint your own belief in the wee folk who populate the world... but if you want more info, the article is here.
