What is a Chupacabra?

Well, I’m glad you asked.

I was very curious after watching The World Series of Pop Culture what exactly is a Chupacabra?

A quick google finds that many results for ‘El Chupacabra’.  I especially love the result from Wikipedia:

The name translates literally from Spanish as “goat-sucker”.

“Both in Puerto Rico and Mexico, “el chupacabra” gained urban legend status. Chupacabra stories began to be released several times in American and Hispanic newscasts across the United States, and chupacabra merchandise, such as T-shirts and baseball caps, were sold.”


Some (urban legends) are sort of uncool, like the Kidney stealers or alligators in the sewers – ok, that is cool but I have to admit that this is really cool.
