Chupacabra and Felons

Well, I recently learned a not so often used definition of the word, felon. Apparently, in addition to the common definition, it can also refer to an inflammation of the fingertip near the end of a nail. I just find it really odd that this sort of physical ailment would be given the same name as a criminal. Or, maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, that's the word of the day.

Another thing I heard about recently is the Chupacabra. I have never heard of it before, and I've asked quite a few people and most had never heard of it before either. It is some sort of urban legend / mythological vampire beast that feasts on the blood of goats. Now, you've got the monster of the day. Anyone come across the term for this beast before?
