Mexican man captures live fairy


Jose Maldonado, a 22-year-old bricklayer in Guadalajara, found a live fairy.

“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,” Maldonado said.

Sadly, it died, but he pickled it in formaldehyde and allows the curious to take a peek for a fee.

  1. I do believe that is a pixie-fairy figure from Kenzer and Company’s Hackmaster miniature line. If this were Coolminiornot, I would give it a rating of 2. [/comicshopguyvoice]

    1. Really?  Do you think?  Do you think that maybe he doesn’t have a real fairy, because none of us were sure.

  2. I guess it’s kinda obvious, but local media has already published it is a hoax. The “fairy” is a Disney toy of some kind. Here’s a link in spanish from last week:

  3. Oh, ye of little faith.  Clap your hands together and repeat after me.  I do believe in fairies.

  4. Fairies only die if you don’t believe I them. So clearly this man doesn’t believe in fairies. Therefore this must be a scam.

  5. A fairy or not a lot to drink anything could be a fairy as fairies go
    so did we drink or is this a fairy we did not know
    for a man with a fairy could he be the fairy himself
    or did he catch a fairy and we just do not know ????

  6. UUUU, reminds me of the Goiania thingy, where for a small fee the curious could take death –
