That you're celebrating 90 years since your first motion picture debut means you're well past your public domain bedtime you fucking rat.

But because your handlers can't stand the thought of giving you up to the rest of the world means we'll probably have to suffer another 90 years without anything going into the public domain, least of all the stuff that you stole from it.

Chupacabras, with an s, is the singular form of the word. Some nouns in Spanish work this way. Chupacabras (not an official word, of course) literally means "sucks goats". We translate it to English as "goat sucker".

A similar word is "abrelatas", a singular noun which literally means "opens cans", and we call a "can opener".
