Nightmare Chimera

image

This creature must have haunted the dreams of many a youth back in 1959, for it still has the power to send me screaming today.

Pig snout, elephant ears, dog feet, fox tail. And the insouciant cigarette holder of FDR. This is worse than anything Stephen King ever conjured up.

Perhaps WU readers would like to submit their proposed names for this creature.
