El Chup seems to be alive and well.

http://cgi.nationalgeographic.com/channel/...k&clip=50952978

In this though it's described as half dog and half gargoyle, green-bodied, spines running down its back, has huge red eyes, is winged and can fly, and makes a "whistling" noise.

Close to our Diablo Plague Eater, but having wings. Hmmm, maybe a special boss.

In the video it is suggested that El Chupacabra means "goat sucker'? Is this more obscure humor from Blizzard?

Interesting video.

Chupacabra is Spanish and translates into goat sucker.

There are plenty of websites out there with information on the idea. I recall seeing a documentary or two about it as well.

I assume Blizzard was inspired by the myth, but I also assume I do not really know.

One website, www.elchupacabra.com, says it was first spotted in 1994.

Hmm indeed.

More exploration and interrogation with the boss must be done. Someone must head to level three.

you're a nutter.

I must admit though, i did wonder what EL Chup meant, i guess i never got around to looking it up.

And anyway, what the hell is a goat sucker supposed to do???


Btw, best part is when the woman behind the wheel pulls out the gun. Damn gun toting grandmas!

"Diablo" means either demon or devil if you translate into English from Spanish, depending on usage and context: according to my Spanish friends. I had asked if it meant "devil" or "demon" and they explained how it meant both, sort of.

This made sense once I considered the "blue demon" or "dust devil" or "djin" words and the less than crystal clear rules on when "demon" or "devil" is the correct choice of word for a demon that plagues us.

Tequilla solved the rest of my confusion.
