Chupacabra inspires terror
The chupacabra is the only monster that scares my children. From ABC News, a story on a Texas-bloodsucking monster that isn't named George Bush or Dick Cheney:
In south Texas, its frightening name resurfaces in the news every few months — especially after another neighborhood pet or farm animal mysteriously dies. "El Chupacabra," they say, "is back." Parents are cautious, warning their children to stay inside at night or risk a face-to-fang encounter with the chupacabra — a red-eyed, spiky-haired, blood-sucking creature with a green-blue tint to its hide.
