Texas news reporting a possible “chupacabra” kill.
It is, of course, nothing of the sort. However, don’t let that stop anyone from using the chupacabra tag to add some flair to the news.
Back when I was a toddler, the chupa description was nothing like a rough-looking dog. It was more fantastical. Lizard-like, with spines down the back, scaly skin and glowing eyes.
Somehow we have reached this point where anything that doesn’t look like a classic coyote or pure-bred dog must be a chupa.
It was cute at first. Awwww, lookit the newsies trying to add some lore to the daily goings ons!
Now, it’s just damn annoying. Every time some yokel ganks a four-legged feral animal, WE GOT US A DAYUM GOAT SUCKER, BOYS!
