The Vatican has today released information regarding the new shrine to be built to the newly proven "Virgin Birth" by a female shark in captivity.

The shrine will be built alongside the Henry Doorly Zoo in Nebraska, where the shark gave birth to a pup in 2001 despite having had no contact with a male, and hopes to attract catholics the world over to bathe in its sacred waters.

The Catholic Church recognised the birth as " a miracle" once it had been scientifically proven.

The female shark will be canonised along with 4,560 frogs and 2 lizards.

The baby shark was tragically killed by a stingray hours after its birth. Stingrays are of course traditionally responsible for the deaths anything remotely saintly .A Vatican spokesman commented, "It died so that we might live"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
