Strafford, MO – After the recent capture of the mythical creature and cryptozoological wonder, the Chupacabra, Strafford school district has decided to adopt the creature as their newest mascot. “Known as the donkey-sucker, we thought it would be the perfect intimidation factor when we play our opponents on the athletic field or on the academic playing ground,” said the District Mascot Director Jalls Uptown.
The Strafford Chupacabras will be represented with a new logo featuring the beast sucking the blood of a goat. New team colors will align with alien grey and donkey-blood red. Local residents are generally supportive of the change. “I think it is a psychological advantage to have our children represented by an animal that was conceived by a ménage a tia between a dog, coyote and alien being because it tells our students that anything is possible,” said a supportive parent.
The creature is relatively unheard in regard to mascot and school representation. According to the American Mascot Association, Chupacabras have been underrepresented in the universe of animal/school association. “A great sense of pride is derived from a mascot, be it a tiger, an eagle or a mythical creature. Whatever icon best represents a community, whatever ties that group together is usually the best option,” said Zed Killerton, AMA representative.
Due to the difficulty in saying the new mascot name, cheerleaders have had difficulty with pronunciation and have settled with “Cha, cha, cha-lupas!” Taco Bell is currently interested in sponsoring the team to promote their Chalupa menu item. Nixa school district is closely monitoring the mascot change and is considering adopting the Nixa Hellhound as their school mascot if Strafford shows success.
