The Argentinian Werewolf Scandal: Why You Shouldn't Believe Everything You Read

On 23rd December, 2014, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the President of Argentina, formally adopted Yair Tawil, a 21-year-old Argentinian Jewish boy, as her godson. The adoption wasn't really a media circus, just a little candlelight ceremony at the Tawil residence. Of course, with the adoption came the usual benefits, a full educational scholarship for Yair Tawil as well as the title of being the President's godswon, complete with a gold medal. However, what President Kirchner described as a "magical moment", soon turned into a publicity nightmare.

Following the Independent, several media outlets of the world began reporting that the real reason behind the President of Argentina adopting a young boy of twenty-one was to save his family from a mythical East-European curse of the nineteenth century.

As per the legend, the seventh born son or daughter of an Argentinian family would be born accursed, doomed to turn into a deformed mythical werewolf-like creature that'll reveal itself on the child's 13th birthday. The creature, called El Lobison or El Lobizon, would from then on feed on excrement, babies and fresh corpses.
