Without internet or TV, villagers did not realize their "Fallen Angel" went viral

Excited villagers thought they had been blessed by an 'angel from heaven' after doll washes up on a beach in Indonesia – only to discover it was an inflatable SEX TOY!

The discovery in March came a day after a solar eclipse swept across the area, a deeply spiritual experience in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country. This led superstitious locals to believe the two events were linked.

Villagers gave the 'angel' a fresh change of clothes and new Muslim headscarf to wear every day and pictures showed it sitting up in a chair and accompanying locals on a boat trip (above)

Police decided to investigate after becoming concerned the increasing excitement about the 'angel' could lead to unrest – and soon punctured the theory.

'We were hearing many stories, such as that the "fallen angel" was crying when she was discovered,' said police chief Heru Pramukarno.

'When our officers arrived they saw that the "fallen angel" was (not) just a doll, it was a sex toy.'

But this is a type of Muslim, Female Angel. Like so many other people, she rejected Trump as a running mate, after being inspected by authorities. She could also play the "Woman Card," as long as its plastic coated.

It is not the first time that a sex toy has been mistaken for something else entirely.

In 2012, a Chinese TV station reported a rare mushroom with medicinal qualities had been discovered in a town during drilling for a new well, only for viewers to point out that the object was in fact a sex toy for men.
